Hundreds of car owners who had to flee the rising waters of the GRAND RIVER on SATURDAY leaving their cars behind will have to wait at least until WEDNESDAY before retrieving their vehicles, organizers of the CLEAR CHANNEL Country WBCT (B-93)/GRAND RAPIDS "Birthday Bash" said during a press conference SUNDAY morning, reports THE GRAND RAPIDS PRESS.
""We're waiting until we can get there safely. There's no way to get them now," said VP/Market Mgr. TIM FEAGAN. "Patience is asked. We know this is a difficult situation. We're asking them to be patient. Right now, the river is too high to get in there. We have the cars secured, and we hope by WEDNESDAY we'll get (them)."
"FEAGAN said security personnel have been put in place to ensure there will be no looting of the vehicles.
"Many concertgoers who returned SUNDAY morning to pick up their possessions were turned away by police and staff members at the fairgrounds. Safety was the major concern, a police officer told a couple hoping to get their house keys from the car they had to leave behind SATURDAY night."
