WARREN, Mich. (AP) â€” The body of a 100-year-old suburban Detroit woman was found in her flooded condominium basement Tuesday, a day after heavy rain swamped much of the area and stranded motorists on water-clogged streets and freeways.
The womanâ€™s daughter was concerned about her welfare and went to the home to check on her, said Warren Mayor James Fouts.
Fouts said the woman appears to have drowned. A cause of death was not immediately available, and Fouts did not release the womanâ€™s name.
Her death was the second blamed on storms that dumped 5.2 inches of rain on Warren Monday. A 30-year-old woman suffered seizures and died after her vehicle became trapped in high water.
Roughly 1,000 vehicles had been abandoned in floodwaters in the suburb where many roads were closed.
â€śThis is going to go down as the great flood of 2014,â€ť Fouts said.
