Maumee and Scioto rivers, Killbuck Creek still flooded; wet weather returning

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Flood warnings remain in parts of Ohio as water from last week's drenching rainstorms continues to swell some rivers and close some roads.

The National Weather Service said flood warnings remained in effect Sunday for the Maumee River in northwest Ohio, the Scioto River in central Ohio, and Killbuck Creek south of Cleveland.

The flood-prone Blanchard River finally receded below flood stage Saturday.

It overflowed its banks after Wednesday and Thursday storms, sending business owners and residents in the town of Findlay scrambling for higher ground.

The weather service anticipates most lingering flooding will subside by early Monday, with the Scioto expected to recede about 3 a.m. Tuesday.

Relief may be brief, with a chance of rain or thunderstorms forecast each day Monday through Friday.
