Flood waters at 11 Mile and Franklin roads in Southfield came before sunset. Several cars were trying to navigate water up to their doors.
However, many will be watching the pumps at the Great Lakes Water Authority. Technicians and contractors are already on site Tuesday night at the Freud Pump Station and will stay there for the next two days to try and fix any issues that may arise.
