High Water Causing Issues On The Roads

All that rain we got Monday and overnight into Tuesday resulted in some flooded roadways and stranded drivers.

A car went into a creek alongside Township Road 237 just east of Findlay, and there are other reports of drivers stranded in water being helped out.

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office said the driver of this car is okay.

Safety officials remind everyone to never drive through high water, because it doesn’t take much moving water at all to pick up a vehicle.

A Flood Warning has been issued for Eagle Creek.

The creek was at about 9.5 feet at 10 a.m. Tuesday, about half a foot above flood stage.

Minor flooding is forecast.

The creek will fall below flood stage Tuesday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

The Blanchard River in Findlay is anticipated to reach 11.5 feet, which is about a half foot above flood stage.
