GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Officials are warning of the potential for more flooding along Michigan rivers, including waterways in the Grand Rapids area.

The Grand Rapids Press reports the Grand River through downtown Grand Rapids rose above its banks earlier this week, causing water to cover some of the Riverwalk path. The river is expected to drop Wednesday before rising again by the middle of next week.

The National Weather Service says the St. Joseph River was 0.2 feet above flood stage at Three Rivers at noon Wednesday. It’s issued flood advisories for the Grand River in Kent and Ionia counties, the Red Cedar River in Ingham County, the Kalamazoo River in Kalamazoo County and the Maple River in Clinton County.

Forecasters say upcoming rain and snowmelt could cause flooding in some areas.
