Aerial footage shows flooding in Cincinnati after Ohio River bursts its banks

The flood stage in the Cincinnati area is 52 feet, or 15.85 meters.

The Illinois River near Tahlequah has reached major flood stage as of Sunday morning and is now forecasted to crest at a height near 19.5 feet by Sunday afternoon.

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.

About 50 miles away, the weather service said the roof was blown off a hotel in Osceola, about 160 miles (257 kilometers) north of Memphis, Tennessee. In Dearborn County, the Aurora area is suffering most from the flooding, particularly homes and businesses nearest the river in downtown Aurora. "Torrential, record-setting rain Saturday of 2.98" in Louisville exacerbated flood problems.

Saturday night: Mild, with periods of rain.

Jefferson County EMA Director John Parker said the area appeared set to dodge a weather bullet. "We just hope the rain stays away", Fischer said.

Kohler said the Rock River at Afton was forecasted to reach minor flooding levels by Sunday.

Dearborn County Commissioners declared Friday that the county will be under a Disaster Declaration until further notice due to Ohio River flooding.

"So we've got the brooms, the squeegees, the mops and whatever in the county, ready to go should we get the call", said Ivan. "That won't affect anything". There are no county-maintained roads that are completely closed, though some are down to one lane, he added. While an unprotected area of the city was hit by flooding, the decision to get that flood wall up before the river crested almost a week ago saved the city and its residents a lot of misery.
