Flooding Hits Coshocton County

The flood waters are rising in Southeastern Ohio, causing some roads in our area to be closed.

In Coshocton County the sheriff’s office is closing roads due to the water levels, causing area residents to have a tough time getting around.

"The fields are starting to flood," said Nellie resident Brent Birker. "The campers over here in the campground are going to have to do something. The water’s going to get up there pretty high."

The Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office says they don’t forsee the water levels getting too much higher and that they expect to see flooding like this every spring.

The sheriff’s office asks motorists to steer clear of closed roads and flooded areas. Even if you think you know how deep the water is, it could unexpectedly wash your car away.
