FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) - An emergency official in northwest Ohio says the main street is under three feet of water in a city waging the latest in a series of almost annual bouts with river flooding.
The Blanchard River in Findlay was more than 5 feet above what's considered flood level Tuesday morning. The National Weather Service expected the river to crest later in the day at 6 feet above the flood stage.
Hancock County emergency director Garry Valentine says 13 people were rescued from their homes and taken to an emergency shelter Monday night.
No injuries have been reported.
Towns throughout Ohio and parts of the Midwest were bracing for more flooding Tuesday, a day after storms and tornadoes damaged buildings and homes in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky.
