GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) - Images captured from the sky show brown floodwaters from the Grand River pouring into Lake Michigan at Grand Haven.
Along with the dirt and waste carried from far upriver, debris of all kinds has been washing up on the shores of West Michigan's most popular beaches.
"We've picked up a lot of driftwood so far," said Jarrod Fletcher of the Department of Natural Resources.
Raw waste consisted of piles of cat tails and a few trees.
The good news is that not a lot of trash has washed up on the beach -- though there have been some surprises, like the picnic table.
Another common type of debris surprised Fletcher.
"We've caught a lot of docks," he said.
