Flood warning: Rock River at Lake Koshkonong

Flood warning: Rock River at Lake Koshkonong

The National Weather Service said the flooding will affect homes on South Christianson Road and Happy Hollow Park.

River levels are dropping throughout MI after flooding last week and over the weekend because of heavy rains and melting snow. That's the highest level there since 1997 when flood stage reached 64.7 feet. Sunday evening, the levels were just under a full foot above major flood stage (14').

The area that received portions of flooding was in Mason County.

Gov. John Kasich issued an emergency declaration Saturday in 17 counties that would make National Guard soldiers available to help flooded communities if needed.

The weather service said record flooding was occurring along the Kankakee following several days of heavy rains and snowmelt that sent streams out of their banks from the Ohio River to MI and Wisconsin. The Ohio River may crest near Louisville today, as parts of Arkansas and IN are bracing for major flood damage.

The majority of the rain should wind down into the afternoon with mainly cloudy skies late.

The original anticipated call out of Jefferson County's technical rescue team to stage at the Wintersville Fire Department on Luray Drive Saturday night was postponed.

Lou Vargo, Wheeling-Ohio County Emergency Management Agency director, said there was no creek flooding in Wheeling or Ohio County Sunday.

There are too many to mention who deserve credit, but we as citizens of the region - up and down the river - say thank you.

Parts of the South and Southwest have also been seriously affected by the heavy rainfall and ensuing floods.

"It's going to take a while to crest", Mazza said. There are no county-maintained roads that are completely closed, though some are down to one lane, he added. He advised residents to consider past experience with heavy rains and flooding and respond accordingly.

So the rain will continue tonight, and we do have the river/stream flood warning in effect until Wednesday, but certain rivers will likely have that warning extended.
