WHITMORE LAKE WATER AT HIGH STAGE: "Highest in a number of years" is the way a Whitmore Lake resident yesterday described the water level at this resort town 10 miles north of Ann Arbor.

There is no need for the diversion tunnel from Horseshoe Creek this year. Two years ago the tunnel outlet on the shore of Whitmore Lake was above the ground; now the water is over the top of the tunnel.

Fourth Ave. A total of 1.9 inches of rain fell in the severe cloudbursts that lashed the city during the afternoon and evening. Only minor damage was reported, however.

RAIN AND MORE RAIN: For the third straight day the skies opened over Ann Arbor yesterday afternoon and a torrential rain fell. The fall of 1.47 inches in a comparatively brief time flooded streets and many basements. The youth perched on a car hood is riding there so he can leap to high ground. That spare pair of shoes could come in handy if he misses. S. Thayer St., where the picture was taken, was flooded almost to the top of the curb.
