Flooding expected along eastern Iowa river

"The forecast right now for the Ohio River at Moundsville is that it will crest at 43 feet, but that could change", Hart said. While most of the flooding was contained in the undeveloped flood plain areas, numerous road closures and some damage to properties were reported.

SIX NATIONS OF THE GRAND-The Six Nations Fire Department has closed off Fourth Line Road at Mohawk Road as a result of flooding. He added the state of emergency allows the city to "proactively provide the necessary information and resources to protect our residents". Avoid walking through standing water to avoid electricution.

Temperatures are set to fall back to more seasonal conditions on Thursday and Friday, with a rain-snow mix possible on Friday and again over the weekend.

Officials say they expect floodwaters to top Owensboro's downtown riverwall Saturday morning, posing only minor risks to mechanical equipment and marble paneling in Smothers Park. Significant flooding occurs in California, Ohio, with several roads, Coney Island, and Riverbend Music Theater mostly underwater.

Residents were being advised that should their water be discoloured to run their cold water tap nearest where the service comes into the house i.e. a laundry room tap.

The National Weather Service says up to 8 inches of rain have fallen in parts of northern in since Monday.

The danger in swift water rescue is not just for those being attended to, said Mulvey, but also to the rescuers themselves.

Vargo said he is anxious with the river flooding and creeks and streams. "Backwater flooding worsens along the Little Miami and Licking Rivers, with some main level of homes flooded in the East End sections of Cincinnati". No one was hurt.

The state of IN was one of the most affected states. No students were injured.

Additional rainfall on top of recent rains will increase the potential for flash-flooding and also some river flooding, according to the weather service.

Crews are using boats to help northern IN residents amid flooding from melting snow and heavy rain moving across the Midwest.

Nancekivell said the OPP is throwing all of the resources it can to find the boy, including surveying the area by helicopter. He says sandbags are being made available. That's well above the Ohio River's flood stage (52 feet) and just shy of the moderate flood stage (56 feet).

Flood warnings are in effect Wednesday across several states, spanning from Texas to Ohio. But unlike parts of northern IN and southeast MI that are experiencing record floods, areas closer to Toledo had less snow on the ground and received less rainfall, so local flooding has been relatively modest.

According to the release, the Ohio River as of 7 a.m. Tuesday was at 47.92 feet, a few feet below the flood stage, which is 50 feet.

Remember, flooding/flash flooding is especially risky at night when those travel hazards are harder to notice. Basement flooding of low-lying homes and businesses is widespread.

Winter weather advisories are in effect for an area stretching from southwestern IL to Texas.

A dual threat weather situation is in place across Arkansas through Saturday.

An estimated 4,900 people in 2,200 homes were affected by the evacuation order.

The following roads in District 5 have water over part or all of the roadway.

Floods have created havoc right from Texas to MI.

Down the river in Rising Sun, the river is not threatening much, thanks to the city's elevation on the north riverbank.
