Town readies for 2nd flood in 6 months
by UPI

FINDLAY, Ohio -- Residents of Findlay, Ohio, prepared for their second flood in six months Thursday as the rain-swollen Blanchard River rose after another storm.

The river was expected to reach five feet above flood stage Thursday, the Toledo Blade reported. Possible flooding also was expected in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.

Last August, the Blanchard was 7.5 feet over flood stage in Findlay. Schools have been closed and there were some evacuations from low-lying areas.

Mayor Pete Sehnert declared a civil emergency, urging motorists to stay off the roads if possible. Hancock County Sheriff Mike Heldman issued a Level 3 emergency, limiting traffic to emergency vehicles.
