Ohio tops 'fastest-dying' cities list

Posted by Nick Dutton - email

DETROIT (AP) - Detroit and Flint have made Forbes magazine's list of what it calls the nation's 10 fastest-dying cities.

Only Ohio has more cities on the list with four: Canton, Cleveland, Dayton and Youngstown.

Forbes says the cities are there because of their declining populations and slow economic growth.

Also making the list are Buffalo, N.Y., Charleston, W.Va.; Springfield, Mass., and Scranton, Pa.

The cities are listed alphabetically and are not ranked.
