  • A street in Brantford Ont. is flooded on Feb. 21 2018

A Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker is at work at the mouth of the Grand River in Port Maitland to reduce the potential for ice jams; similar operations have occurred there in past years. Governor Eric Holcomb of IN plans to tour flood-damaged parts of northern IN on Friday.

GRCA flood co-ordinator Joe Farwell said areas downstream of Brantford were being monitored closely. "We have to wait and see how much more rain we will get and how much rain anywhere east of us on the Ohio River receives".

Numerous industries along River Road already have flood preparation plans which they will put into place if the flooding occurs, according to Allen, who said one business has already utilized a U-Haul trailer to remove some items from its location.

The National Weather Service office in North Webster, Ind., said the Tiffin would crest in Stryker at 16.5 feet, 5.5 feet above flood stage, early Friday morning.

The forecasters also look at how much snow is on the ground and temperature forecasts to determine how much water will flow into the streams and rivers, Sekelsky said. The roadblock was set up because of flooding on the road.

In southwestern MI, sandbags were filled to protect homes and businesses in the village of Mattawan as the Mattawan Creek rose above its banks.

Farther east along the river, the city of East Liverpool, Ohio, advised people living in flood-prone areas to find another place to stay by Sunday night, WYTV reported.

At the same time, the weather service was looking at a forecast which called for the possibility of a "prolonged period of wet weather to set up over the OH and MS river valleys" this week. W.Va. 2 was closed in both directions for several hours while contractors cleared the debris.

The river will continue rising to near 21.0 feet by this evening.


The City of Brantford issued a state of emergency and called for an immediate evacuation Wednesday, after heavy rain and ice jams in the Grand River caused widespread flooding.

Our first round of rainfall will arrive overnight and linger through 7:00 A.M. ET or 8:00 A.M. ET Friday morning.

In addition, GoBus has altered its route because of flooding concerns in Marietta.

By Sunday, the weather service expects the water to be flowing at 33,600 cubic feet per second past the Blue Bridge in downtown Grand Rapids.

"Not only are we walking our own berm but we are walking along the flood walls around the city checking things out making sure no surprises leaks have occurred", said Charles Schroeder, the assistant Environmental Services manager.

"Heavy rain certainly contributed to the landslides", Vargo said. Avoid walking through standing water to avoid electricution.

Both Ohio County Emergency Management Director Lou Vargo and Marshall County EMA Director Tom Hart said residents and businesses should prepare for "significant river flooding" during the weekend.

"We're a team, we all work together", said Miller.
