Ohio University cancels classes Monday in anticipation of flooding, high winds

Rain could result in flooding in central Pa.

Creek flooding that began February 15 wreaked havoc on many Ohio Valley roads and hillsides, in addition to causing basement flooding and backups.

"The ground is so saturated with water, any additional water - there's nowhere else for it to go except to the river", said Safety Service Director Brian Allen.

The river is expected to begin slowly falling late Sunday afternoon into Sunday night and is now forecasted to fall below minor flood stage by late Monday night.

Meteorologist Andy Hatzos says the Ohio River at Cincinnati is expected to crest at 59.5 feet (18.1 meters) Monday morning.

Multiple sites in Rock County are offering free sand as flooding continues to impact low-lying areas throughout the area. There could be minor erosional flood damage to low lying areas and farm lands in Janesville and Afton is anticipated.

According to Puckett, because the weather service predicts that the river will continue to fall, there is a possibility flood walls erected in the past week or so may begin to come down today.

The majority of the rain should wind down into the afternoon with mainly cloudy skies late. Clay County Sheriff Terry Miller told KAIT-TV that Albert Foster died Saturday night after the home was blown into a pond.

He also asks that residents call their local city, county or Red Cross if there is anyone who needs assistance.

"That is a gate that will ultimately keep the Ohio River from protruding towards the residences here", MSD supervisor Tony Parrott said.

"Ohioans do a good job of looking out for each other and we're doing it again now also", Kasich said in the statement. Backwater flooding from the Ohio River can worsen on area creeks, especially along the Ohio side of the river through Scioto and Adams counties.
