Large increase in the Ohio River flood crest

24 February 2018

Rain takes time to collect and gather in the river, Sekelsky said. Portions of Route 8 in northern Kentucky become flooded, as well as portions of Lawrenceburg and Aurora, Indiana. Backwater flooding affects many roads in Anderson Township.

How much more water can we expect? Rains have been occurring over the region for the past many days.

Weather service forecasters say more rain is expected through Saturday, ranging from less than an inch in northern IL to 3 to 4 inches in far southern IL.

The National Weather Service office in North Webster, Ind., said the Tiffin would crest in Stryker at 16.5 feet, 5.5 feet above flood stage, early Friday morning. "We also have our OPP emergency response team, so we will be searching both sides of the Grand River", OPP Const. Paul Nancekivell said.

Local roads and bridges were jammed as people began to make their way out of the three neighbourhoods covered under the evacuation order, he said, adding the number of people fleeing the flood is not yet known.

At this point in time, Six Nations Fire and Emergency Services have visited homes from 744 West to Bateman Line to advise residents of the flooding and offer assistance with voluntary relocation. Fear of the rising river also prompted the evacuation of a nursing home in Ottawa.

As for Leganes , Claudio Beauvue again led the line with support from Nabil El Zhar , but Nordin Amrabat was only on the bench. Madrid were comfortably on top as the half wound down, with Benzema nearly heading a third from Lucas' cross.

Just after 1 p.m. on February 21, the Grand River Conservation Authority issued a warning for Haldimand and Six Nations that ice jams in Brantford might release, "resulting in a surge of water that will move downstream and rapidly increase flows in the area".

The flood waters are already causing problems further east. Drier weather will return to Greater Lafayette beginning Sunday afternoon and linger through the middle part of next week. MI has declared states of emergency in various cities and counties and at least two deaths have been blamed on the flooding, which has ravaged states as far south as Oklahoma.

"Not only are we walking our own berm but we are walking along the flood walls around the city checking things out making sure no surprises leaks have occurred", said Charles Schroeder, the assistant Environmental Services manager.

Michigan State Police say a 1-year-old girl has been found dead in standing water in her backyard.

"Certainly if anyone sees any bodies or anybody laying at the edge of the Grand River, we need a call right away".

Friday night will bring light rain, forecasters believe, with a low of 39 degrees.
