HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) -- The sunshine felt good today but with it comes the possibility of flooding.  In the city of Holland, public works crews are trying to get ready according to City Manager Ryan Cotton.  They are trying to uncover catch basins so the water has somewhere to go.  Cotton also says that residents might want to put items in the basement up off the floor.  He also asks people to do what they can to help by knocking the snow back from drains, fire hydrants and even at intersections close to their homes.  Drains are cut into curbs at the lowest point and then the water goes into either overland drains or through pipes into Lake Macatawa.
