Anyone have problems with flooding this afternoon here? About a quarter mile down the road here (where Springdale and Harrison meet in Colerain TWP), Harrison and part of Springdale were underwater. I turned around and got my camera from home real fast. By the time I got back the water had receded some, but got this picture

Note the water line on the concrete pillar. That creek usually sits about 15 feet below street level. At the time I took that picture, the right lane was still under water on Harrison.

Wild. Never saw a flood when I lived in Ohio (butler county). Hope it recedes. :beerme:

I encountered some high water at the intersection of Route 4 and I-275 in Springdale. The drainage ditch near the road was completely overflown and there was standing water about three feet deep in the road. It caught me off guard as I drive through that intersection all the time and have never seen any form of flooding.

My parents had some flooding at their house, very poor drainage near North Bend in College Hill. I noticed the Mill Creek was way up yesterday following the storm. Hadn't seen it that high in a long time.
