COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Flood warnings are in effect in several Ohio counties as rain continues to soak the state.
The National Weather Service has issued flash flood warnings from Sunday morning until late Sunday night for east central Ohio, Belmont, Monroe and Noble counties.
Meteorologists say heavier showers and thunderstorms will move from southwest to northeast into Sunday, with the heaviest rains in newly affected Ohio areas expected late Sunday morning.
A flood warning in southeast Warren County and flash flood watches in Ross, Hocking, Pike and Scioto counties remained in effect until 11 p.m. Saturday.
High waters Saturday caused numerous road closings in the Cincinnati area and re-routing of two city bus routes. A marine unit rescued two employees trapped in high water inside a storage unit in Monroe.
