Threat Of Flooding Returns To Findlay
Residents near the flood-prone Blanchard River in Findlay have been piling sandbags as forecasters warn there's a risk of moderate flooding from rainstorms moving through the region.
The National Weather Service issued a flood warning for the Blanchard River in Hancock County. The weather service said the river was swollen enough on Friday morning to cause flooding in some low-lying areas and was expected to rise above flood stage by midday.
Findlay officials were making sandbags available for residents to pick up around the clock while flooding remains a threat.
City officials also were urging residents in areas prone to flash flooding to be prepared for that.
A bit more rain in the area was forecast for Saturday.
Findlay was repeatedly struggled with flooding, including record-high waters in 2007.
