Home owners at Delton's crooked lake could see the worst of their lake flooding may be yet to come as winter brings more snow. The lake's levels are around four feet higher than they should be,brought on throughout the year by heavy rains and snow.
At the present time the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids said based on the daily reports from the Hastings Climatological Weather Station the ground is already saturated. The ground temperature right now is 34 degrees and would not take in any more heavy rain or snow. This would impact Crooked lake and the homes already affected by the high lake levels and flooding. The other concern is the ground freezing up from the winter cold adding more problems to the Crooked lake home owners.
