Flooding possible as heavy rain forecasted Wednesday

Storms tonight will add to the flood threat and all together, some may see another 1-2 inches of rain in the next 24 hours. Streams and creeks could leave their banks, flooding nearby properties.

Crest is now expected at 13.3 feet Wednesday afternoon. Because the soil is already saturated and streams are already swollen that means flooding is likely nearly any day, with some potential for significant river flooding late in the week through the weekend.

The river was at 10.53 feet as of 9 p.m. Monday, the watch states, and the flood stage is 11 feet.

Forecasters described both rivers' expected flooding as "minor", with the Tiffin expected to crest early Thursday morning at about 14.1 feet and the St. Joseph's 14.2-foot crest expected late Wednesday. At 7 feet, water begins to reach foundations and crawl spaces of many homes.

As of 12 noon, officials in Douglas County were reporting road closures on Mount Vernon Road near Woodrow Wilson Park and on Marsh Avenue due to water over the roads.
