An unwanted waterfall

Some county residents are battling high water following Thursday night's rain, which some farmers' rain gauges measured at 3 to 4 inches. Several roads were closed this morning, according to the Mercer County Sheriff's Office, because of up to 3 feet of water over the roadway. Closed were: Gause Road between Swamp and St. Anthony roads; Karch Road between Kuhn and Monroe roads; and Kuhn Road between Karch and Burkettsville-St. Henry roads. Additionally, there was free flowing water running across Oldtown Road between Riley and Harris roads. Above is the heavy rain-created waterfall on Monroe Road.
