MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say floodwaters that closed some roads in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula are receding.

State police say U.S. highway 41 over the Chocolay River in Marquette County is open Wednesday along with most other area roads after being closed Tuesday due to water over the roadway. Michigan Route 94 west remained closed west of U.S. 41 due to a washout.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Coast Guard said the guard and partner agencies rescued 10 people and three dogs along the Chocolay River.

The National Weather Service had issued a flash flood warning in the area after more than 3 inches of rainfall in some areas since Monday evening.
