Stellantis Shipping Yard Flooded

Heavy rainfall in Michigan this past week has led to flash flooding in the Detroit area. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer declared a state of emergency for Wayne County (where Detroit is located) on Saturday, after more than six inches of rain fell on Detroit in 24 hours. 

Vehicles of all kinds are being temporarily stored in the flooded area, including the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Grand Cherokee L, Dodge Durango, minivans, Chargers, Challengers and trucks, Stellantis said. This is a waiting area before you are picked up to go by train. The Auburn Hills automaker declined to specify how many vehicles were affected, what would happen to those vehicles, or if more than one storage location was affected.

“There will be an assessment of the condition of the vehicles at the yard. We have no additional information to share at this time,” Stellantis stated.
