Ice causing rivers to overflow in NE Ohio

CLEVELAND (AP) — Flooded roads are a concern for people who live in communities near two overflowing
rivers in northeast Ohio.
The
National Weather Service issued flood warnings until noon Monday for
southwestern Lake County and northeastern Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh)
County as the Chagrin River backed up due to ice buildups.
A flood warning also was in effect for the Rocky River, west of Cleveland.
Some
roads in Willoughby were closed by mid-afternoon Sunday as the Chagrin
River overflowed onto the streets. A number of residents voluntarily
left their homes.
Some residents of the suburb of Rocky River —
where the river of the same name empties into Lake Erie — voluntarily
left their homes because of the rising water.
