Severe Flooding Swamps Western Michigan Stadium

Andy Berg

Severe storms and heavy rains left University of Western Michigan’s football stadium looking more like a swimming pool.

Nearly four inches of rain fell overnight in Western Michigan, leaving UWM’s Waldo Stadium full of water, according to the Kalamazoo ABC affiliate.

According to UWM spokesman Adam Bodnar, the facilities management team is already working to expel the water from the field.

This isn’t the first time that Waldo has seen flooding. Back in October of 2014, heavy rains and flooding cancelled a game between the Broncos and the Akron Zips. At that time, nearly two feet of standing water filled the stadium.

No events are planned for stadium this week. The flooding poured over into Robert J. Bobb Stradium, where UWM baseball plays, but that season has already ended.
