Ohio sees continued flood risk as rain continues

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Most Ohio counties are still under a flash flood watch as another day of rain adds to rising waters in yards and roadways.

Ohio residents were finding yards and parking lots turned into lakes as many parts of the state have seen at least some rain every day for about two weeks.

People had to be evacuated from their homes Tuesday because of flooding in the villages of Corning and Crooksville in Perry southeast of Columbus.

Serious flooding also was reported in Morrow County north of Columbus and Athens County in southeastern Ohio. Residents of northwestern Ohio were keeping an eye on fast rising creeks and rivers, including the Sandusky River in Tiffin and the Blanchard River in Findlay.

No injuries have been reported.
