UPDATE – 9:00 A.M.

We’ve seen no shortage of rain over the past couple of days, but the Blanchard River should stay within its banks. The National Weather Service calls for the river to crest at 10.8 feet this afternoon in Findlay.

The same can’t be said for the Eagle Creek. It’s currently in minor flood stage at more than 9.8 feet. Eagle creek should drop out of flood stage by early this afternoon.

Downstream the National Weather Service calls for the Blanchard River to crest in action stage in Ottawa at 22 feet Saturday evening.
