GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan's already overflowing rivers are getting more water as a wave of severe thunderstorms pushes through the state.
The National Weather Service says the Grand River is expected to crest Monday about 6 feet over flood stage near Grand Rapids, forcing some evacuations.

The river was 3.1 feet above flood stage Thursday at Comstock Park and 2.2 feet above in Ottawa County's Robinson Township.

Up to 4 inches of rain could fall on parts of the state through Friday.
