Emergency management officials give update on extensive flooding

Emergency management officials give update on extensive flooding

Forecasters expect flooding to persist through the week in the Cincinnati region, and authorities said Monday that will hinder efforts to assess damage. In fact, the death toll has risen to five. As of Sunday morning, the river levels pushed into Paul Brown Stadium, covering Smale Riverfront Park and crossing over Mehring Way to reach the home of the Bengals. At press time Sunday, Vargo said the Ohio River at Wheeling was expected to crest at 34.9 feet, which is below the city's flood stage of 36 feet.

Unusually severe winter flooding is under way in the United States.

There are 16 flood pump stations in the metro, and they've been running at full capacity for more than a week now. We've also been talking about the Major Flooding happening with the Ohio River which ends up dumping into the Mississippi River, so as that water continues flowing south we'll see the Mississippi River rise also. But this did not surpass the 1997 flood level.

This emergency declaration allows the governor to use state resources, including the National Guard, to help local emergency officials. The city has since put up further gates and topped off gates in such spots as Madison Street.

Teachers and parents wrestle with idea of guns at school
The president then doubled down on the proposal Thursday, both on Twitter and at a subsequent White House meeting. It should not be easier for a madman to shoot up a school than a bank or a jewelry store or some Hollywood gala.

"It will go down gradually and by Friday morning it will be down to 27 feet", Vargo said. The rain didn't come down as hard as expected and we hope we will be pretty good.

While no flooding was reported in Portsmouth, plenty of water reached the neighboring town of New Boston. "But we don't know if it's really helping because water is still coming in through the foundation".

At least a dozen tornadoes touched down across the south-central US over the weekend as up to a foot of rain was dumped on the region in the past week.

Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla said he was breathing a lot easier with the revised forecast but still anticipated the possibility of some county roads being closed.
