Flooded Areas Get More Rain

TOLEDO -- More rain has soaked areas that got as much as 9 inches of rain on Monday.  News 11 Meteorologist Mike Stone says heavy storms moved through Putnam and Hancock counties, which could bring an additional 1 to 4 inches of rainfall.

"These storms extended south to Hardin county, and moved eastward," said Stone.  "Another line of storms approached from southern Michigan & NW Ohio."

Stone says today will be mostly cloudy on average, warmer and more humid.  Scattered thunderstorms are possible again Wednesday afternoon.

Stone says it turns hotter and even more humid Thursday and Friday with scattered storms still possible.  A cold front comes through Friday night into Saturday with some more storms.

Drier, cooler and less humid air arrives Sunday.

As many as 9 inches of rain fell Monday into Tuesday in the southern parts of the News 11 viewing area.  That left cities like Findlay, Arlington, and Carey flooded as creeks and drainage ditches could not keep up with the volume of water.  The Blanchard River also overflowed its banks, flooding downtown Findlay for a three-block radius.

No one has been killed or seriously injured, but the cost of the flood is expected to reach in the millions.

Count on News 11 to stay on top of this situation as it develops.
