Northwest Ohio Pummeled by Rain, Flooding

Nine inches in 48 hours... that is a lot of water, and most of it is above ground right now.

From the VanWert Times-Bulletin:

Besides Van Wert County, the state of emergency is also in effect for Allen, Crawford, Hancock, Hardin, Putnam, Richland, Seneca, and Wyandot counties in northwestern Ohio... Altogether, 21 counties in Ohio have been affected by flooding and wind damage.

I remember the last Ohio River flood back in the early 90s. Serpentine Wall was entirely under water. I remember looking at it and seeing just the top of a flagpole sticking out from the water. Crazy.

The VanWertVoice has links to some videos of the current flood.
