Cincinnati Braces for More Flooding From Ohio River

Cincinnati Braces for More Flooding From Ohio River

Most of the past Ohio River flooding occurred in the Powhatan area, he said. Residents will need to fill and transport their own bags.

Another round of rain is expected Saturday.

Gov. John Kasich has declared a state of emergency in 17 counties.

In Michigan, river levels were dropping after flooding last week and over the weekend.

At Racine, the projected Tuesday crest went from 50.5 feet to 40.2 feet.

The Ohio River is expected to begin slowly receding Sunday, but will likely to remain above flood stage until the end of the week, fed by its numerous tributaries, Cassady said.

Meteorologist Kristen Cassady said the Ohio River reached 60 feet Sunday morning at its Cincinnati recording station, 8 feet above flood stage, and could reach 60.6 feet sometime Sunday.

It looks like our 1 inch of possible rain over Wednesday and Thursday should not be enough to cause a spike on the river this week.

The rain will linger until this front and area of low pressure push further south, which we expect it to do overnight.

The city said it will have someone monitoring the rainfall totals and the level of the river 24/7 for the next three days. "It's pretty quiet right now".

"Oh, it does worry me very much, but I've been through it many, many times", Cheryl Schmidbauer said.

A band of thunderstorms reaching across the lower Mississippi Valley into OH on Saturday killed a Kentucky woman in her home and threatened more flooding in an area that has already seen evacuations because of high water.

The heavy rains last week have led to massive flooding from Louisiana to MI. "Not underwater, but their basements underwater, maybe some on the first floor", Allen said.

Saturday's heavy rain and flash flooding made for some risky conditions. "That won't affect anything".

Emergency crews in Louisville have worked over 100 water rescues since Saturday morning. There are no county-maintained roads that are completely closed, though some are down to one lane, he added. He advised residents to consider past experience with heavy rains and flooding and respond accordingly.

A Flood Warning has been in effect since Monday for areas along the Ohio River.

"You just do what you have to do".
