Flood waters overwhelm Waldo Stadium (once again)

Waldo Stadium hit with flood waters.

Waldo Stadium flooded on Wednesday night, for the second time in as many years. After heavy overnight rain dumped two plus inches in Kalamazoo, resulting in flooding, fallen trees and debris covering a handful of streets, Waldo's field is completely covered in water. 

The field was overwhelmed by rain in October 2017 before WMU's homecoming game against the Akron Zips. The flood resulted in the postponement of the game which was rescheduled for 1 p.m. the next day. 

The Broncos would lose the Sunday afternoon game, falling to the Zips, 14-13, after 1 million gallons of water was pumped from Waldo Stadium. Luckily for the Broncos, their next home game doesn't take place until August 31, when they'll take on Monmouth University.

It's still unknown how long it will take for the field to drain, Director of Football Operations Drew Robinson, told the Western Herald on Thursday. The National Weather Center Service has put Kalamazoo under a flood advisory until June 21 at 11:15 a.m.
