Was the Jeep plant flooded?

On Saturday, hard rains flooded streets and highways throughout Detroit, wrecking a number of newly made Jeep Grand Cherokees waiting for shipment. Some asked, was the factory flooded? That would be a disaster for Stellantis North America, given that the plant makes a desirable product and several other plants have had to shut down due to parts shortages.

The answer: the factory was not affected, although one shift was cancelled due to road flooding. Production has returned, even as we write this. Also, as you can see if you look hard at this image, it appears that many of the vehicles awaiting shipment were undamaged.
