PORTLAND, Mich. (WOOD) — An ice jam led to “catastrophic” flooding in Portland, where dozens of people were forced from their homes.

One resident described the flooding as “catastrophic.” It surrounded 15 foot trees, leaving only the tops untouched, spilling over the top of a man’s Monte Carlo and filling basements.
