Updated Thursday 6:25 a.m. There's now a centralized place for flood victims to find out the latest information on what resources are available, or to report damage and recovery needs--just call 2-1-1, reports the City of Kalamazoo's Facebook page. Meanwhile, only two Kalamazoo roads remain closed due to flooding, according to the city's website. They are E. Crosstown Parkway between Mills St. and S. Pitcher St., and Sheldon St. between S. Pitcher St. and E. Vine St.

Updated Wednesday 7:25 a.m. All but one flooded road has reopened in the downtown Kalamazoo area, according to a map posted on the city's website this morning. Still closed is E. Dutton St. between Jasper and Portage streets. Also, flood victims can pick up free cleanup kits and a few tools from noon to 6 p.m. today (Wednesday) at the Lakewood Fire Station, 3100 E. Lake St. in Kalamazoo, says a Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office press release. The project is a partnership between the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army.
