Celina streets flood
Wednesday's rain/hail deluge that dropped nearly an inch and a half of water in a short time caused minor street flooding in Celina, according to safety service director Tom Hitchcock. "We had a little bit of localized flooding, and the Beaver (Creek) is starting to rise, but it's not abnormal when we get a rainfall like last night," he said this morning. Hitchcock was unaware of any electrical outages, other than a little blink at approximately 3 p.m. In Auglaize County, Emergency Management Agency Directory Troy Anderson reported a few roads in the northeast section of the county were closed this morning due to flooding. Hail also was reported in the area. The National Weather Service forecast showers and thunderstorms today with some of the storms potentially producing heavy rain.
