Deadly storms hit heart of the country; more flooding expected

The current river forecast is the 10th highest level ever in Louisville

The National Weather Service is expecting the river at Cincinnati to crest at about 59.5 feet on Tuesday morning, resulting in moderate flooding.

He noted there is not much rain in the forecast during the next week for the region.

"We're going to remain vigilant until the river gets back to where it belongs", Roberts said.

Major flood stage is 38 feet at the Upper gauge. We've also been talking about the Major Flooding happening with the Ohio River which ends up dumping into the Mississippi River, so as that water continues flowing south we'll see the Mississippi River rise also. The river was expected to reach moderate flood stage along the southern border of OH and West Virginia in the coming days, the weather service said.

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 city said it will have someone monitoring the rainfall totals and the level of the river 24/7 for the next three days.

"We still want people to be aware of their surroundings, especially those along creeks and streams, which could flash flood if a heavy band of rain comes through", Ober said.

"Thank goodness it's turning out the way it is".

"Prepare for the worst, hope for the best", he said. "We'll get through this as we always do, by working together", said Kasich. "Torrential, record-setting rain Saturday of 2.98" in Louisville exacerbated flood problems.

In Brooke County, EMA Director Bob Fowler said the emergency response center was shut down as of Saturday afternoon. The current level early Saturday morning was at 8.1 feet.

Roads are closed throughout the area along the river. He advised residents to consider past experience with heavy rains and flooding and respond accordingly. The National Weather Service calculated that the high waters would affect homes and boat landings in the Blackhawk Island area, where the Rock River feeds into Lake Koshkonong.

"You just do what you have to do".
