Event

The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a flood warning for the the Ohio River valley in the Greater Cincinnati area and nearby counties on Wednesday, February 6, as rainfall totals of up to 8 cm (3 in) are expected in the region through Thursday evening (local time), February 7. Weather authorities indicate significant flooding is possible due to melting snowfall and heavy rains in the Ohio counties of Brown, Adams, Pike, Highland, Scioto, and Ross. The NWS flood warnings also extend to the Cincinnati suburbs in the states of Indiana and Kentucky. Flooding and associated disruptions, including infrastructure damage and road and bridge closures, cannot be ruled out.

Advice

Individuals in the affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports, anticipate flooding and transportation disruptions, and remember that walking or driving through running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult - and that floodwater may contain wastewater and chemical products; all items having come into contact with floodwater should be disinfected and all foodstuffs discarded.
