FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) - Governor Strickland says the state is ready to do whatever it can to help victims of this week's flooding in northwest Ohio.

In Findlay Friday morning, the governor told local officials: "We're all in this together."

Strickland flew over the city and said it's "traumatizing" to see how many families have been affected.

According to Findlay's city safety director, at least 300 homes were flooded, and most of those were also hit by Findlay's historic flood last August.

The governor planned to go on to see the cleanup under way in Ottawa next.

Elsewhere in the region, officials in Grand Rapids say the Maumee River is slowly going down after spilling into the village's central business district.
