Meridian Township, MI (WILX) -- Meridian Township closed several parks and roads due to flooding. Township officials advised residents to take flood precautions.

Deputy Township Manager Derek Perry reminded residents that driving around signs and barricades that a road is closed is a traffic violation and possibly dangerous.

"It can also unnecessarily place you and our emergency personnel at risk if a vehicle becomes disabled and necessitates a rescue," Perry said.

He said that flooding continues to be a concern and the Township is doing what it can to control that impact. Meridian Township is working with Ingham County.
