PORTLAND, Mich. (WOOD) — Some Portland businesses are flooded after an ice jam caused the Grand River to spill over its banks in Ionia County.

Some businesses along Kent Street near Grand River Avenue had upwards of two feet of water in their basements Wednesday morning.

The flooding also forced approximately 50 residents to evacuate as the rising waters crept towards their homes overnight in Portland.
