Flooding from heavy rain has left Homer Stryker field in Kalamazoo underwater.

The water level on the field is about knee high and large fish swimming on the mound.

The flooding prompted a warning from the city of Kalamazoo and the city says the Kalamazoo River is expected to crest at nine feet late Thursday or early Friday.

People living in low-lying areas, and other flood prone areas could be impacted by the development and are urged to prepare.

Free sandbags are now available for pick-up at Washington Square Apartments and the Edison Neighborhood Association.

Kalamazoo City officials don't believe this round of flooding will be as bad as when the February flooding when the Kalamazoo River hit a historic 11.69 feet.
