The National Weather Service says water levels retreated on Wednesday after some roads and parks were earlier swamped.

Flooding mostly affected the village of Dundee, where water washed over M-50 — closing the road and a downtown bridge. The Monroe News reports the bridge was back open on Thursday morning.

In a posting on the village website, officials say American Red Cross flood cleanup kits for Dundee residents will be available starting Thursday at the village offices.

Flooding also was reported along the river in Blissfield and Monroe, affecting some roadways and parks.
