State officials warn of potential flooding PDF Print E-mail

As winter weather advisories continue to impact Ohio, officials are encouraging residents to begin focusing on the increased potential of flood risk, particularly with warmer temperatures and increased chances for precipitation.
Rain is in the forecast this week, and only a small amount of rain in combination with significant snow accumulation can cause flooding in some areas.
"Flooding is a top hazard for Ohio," said Steve Ferryman, Ohio Emergency Management Agency's Mitigation and Recovery branch chief. "Residents should be mindful of changing weather conditions and take precautions against flood damage."
A midwinter or early spring thaw can produce large amounts of runoff in a short period of time. Because the ground is hard and frozen, water cannot penetrate and be reabsorbed. The water then runs off the surface and flows into lakes, streams and rivers, causing excess water to spill over their banks.
"Ohio's prolonged periods of subfreezing temperatures have caused the creation of many ice jams throughout the state," said Christopher Thoms, Ohio Department of Natural Resources' Floodplain Management program manager. "Minor flooding has already occurred in some areas, particularly in northern Ohio."

First siege of Fort Meigs is lecture topic 2-19-14 PDF Print E-mail

PERRYSBURG - Larry Nelson, adjunct assistant professor of history at Bowling Green State University, will present a lecture on "The Southern Sorties" at Fort Meigs on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Doors open at 7 p.m.
The First Siege of Fort Meigs in May 1813 consisted of five days of heavy artillery bombardment and one day of intense fighting on both sides of the Maumee River. The two engagements on the south side of the river, Clay's Landing and Miller's Charge, were part of a coordinated attack that ended in success for American forces, yet tend to be overlooked by the more disastrous defeat of U.S. forces on the north side of the river. However, these southern sorties saw intense fighting and represent some of the first American successes in the Western Theater of war and should not be overlooked.
