SOUTH RANGE, MI (AP)-- The Historical Society of Michigan has raised $10,000 to help two groups recover from major flooding in the Western Upper Peninsula.
The Houghton County Historical Society is getting $8,000 after its storage building flooded in June. Water and sediment also filled the storage basement at the Copper Range Historical Society, which is receiving $2,000.
Larry Wagenaar of the Historical Society of Michigan says the damage was "overwhelming." He estimates that the Houghton County group might have damage worth $100,000 or more.
