FLINT (WWJ/AP) – A state of emergency has been declared in Genesee County following a storm that caused major flooding.

Governor Rick Snyder took the action Friday to make state resources available to address remaining threats to public health and safety.

The storm started May 3 and dumped more than 5 inches of rain in and around Flint.

FEMA will help with an assessment on Monday to determine whether any federal aid may be available to help residents and business owners.
