Saturday afternoon Flat Rock was hit by high winds and lots of rain including Downtown. The rain flooded most streets in the city along with the railroad viaduct on Telegraph Road which had to be blocked off due to flooding. The winds took out trees and power lines causing a power outage on the south side of the city. It looks like the most damage was from Matilda and Telegraph to the South West City Limits. Hawthorn Ridge Sub and points south to the Huron River were without power for about 12 hours as DTE Electric replaced some transformers in the area. Tree limbs were down in the same area causing some problems for home owners and drivers. One resident in Hawthorn Ridge said “If it wasn’t tied down it was flying”.
