High water closed Newton Road between Brim and Haskins roads today, which blocked access to and closed the BG Community Center.
There is no water problem in the building, city officials said. The center will reopen after the road is reopened.
Ponding water was a problem on other streets in the city but officials said none had been closed.
At Pemberville, Mayor Gordon Bowman reported the Portage River was still two feet below the minimum flood stage at 9 this morning.

For a short time Thursday, the Bowling Green Christian Food Pantry was not accessible due to flooding in the area leading up to the pantry.
"It's a mess. I've seen it bad before but never this bad," said Shirley Woessner, coordinator of the pantry.
She said ice underneath the water made the journey even more dangerous.
Within hours pumps were brought in and the water was removed from the area.
Woessner and other volunteers were very concerned as the rising water was within a couple inches of crossing the threshold at the pantry door which could have caused damage to some of the food.
