People evacuated, roads closed, emergency declarations issued
By Shelley Grieshop
A deluge of rain and melting snow overnight caused flooding that chased some Mercer and Auglaize county families from their homes early this morning.
Water rescues - some by boat - were ongoing at different locations at press time today after nearly 3 inches of rain fell and swelled Grand Lake, area rivers and creeks. Emergency declarations were issued in Mercer County, as well as the village of Coldwater, to possibly help flood victims obtain funding for damage. [More]
