The Ohio River reached a minor flood stage on Wednesday and closes roads

The Ohio River reached a small flood stage on Wednesday and continues to rise. The roads will be closed due to flooding in the surrounding areas. LATEST WEATHER WARNINGS February fell just under 22 inches of snow, which is 78% of all winter snow. As the temperature rises, the signs of snow have almost completely melted away. This snowmelt combined with the falling rain brings the river out of its banks. The river has been rising slowly for a few days and is expected to reach a height of 56 feet by Thursday morning. The ridge would have been similar in height to the flood in February last year and a fairly normal or average flood in late spring / winter along the river. The flooding is affecting low-lying areas including New Richmond, the East End, California’s Anderson Township, Pierce Township, Coney Island, and Riverbend. The Cincinnati Police Department is urging people not to travel through these areas due to flooding problems.
