High Ohio River Brings Flood Warning


A Flash Flood Watch is also set to go into effect from Tuesday night through early Thursday morning for Southwest Arkansas (Hempstead, Howard, Lafayette, Little River, Miller, Nevada, and Sevier counties).

The rain has been falling since last night and continues today.

Heavy rain is likely Wednesday morning.

Oneida County is under a flood watch, though the Cortland area is not expected to see much in the way of flooding. The combination of melting snow and heavy rainfall will bring already swollen river levels up.

"Before you leave for work tomorrow, make sure to check the forecast and allow yourself a lot of time to get there", says Mike Johnson, National Weather Service Meteorologist.

"Locally, some could see higher amounts - enough to cause flooding, particularly in low-lying areas", Bishop said.




The report sent out from the National Weather Service states this flood should compared to the 8.4 crest that flooded the area around the Red Cedar River on April 8, 2017.

In the short term they also issued a Flood Watch for Jefferson, Lewis, Oswego and Northern Oneida counties for Tuesday and continuing into Wednesday evening.

Tuesday: Showers and a possible thunderstorm with high near 65 degrees and a low of about 45 degrees.

Long range models show that seven day rainfall totals could climb to the five to ten inch range over NE TX, SE OK and SW AR.

More severe flooding is expected for St. Joseph and Tiffin Rivers by Friday and Saturday.
