Michigan Flood History

Dear Members,

I am seeking case studies for possible inclusion in my dissertation on the topic of the National Flood Insurance Program and its implications for communities in several Midwestern states, including Michigan.  I am particularly interested in floods that occurred in cities or towns situated on non-navigable rivers.  If anyone can suggest a significant flood event that occurred in Michigan between 1950 to 1980, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you, on or off the list.
