More rain in weekend forecast

Tiffin Advertiser-Tribune

Sandusky River in Tiffin receded Thursday, but more rain is in National Weather Service's forecast.

The river, which remained under a flood warning Thursday night, was at 8.59 feet at 9:45 p.m. It was at 10.99 feet at 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to the weather service.

Today's forecast for Tiffin includes rain and possibly a thunderstorm. National Weather Service predicts rain and snow Saturday and a chance of snow Sunday.

Dan Stahl, director of Seneca County Emergency Management Agency, said people living in flood-prone areas need to watch the forecast closely. If the area gets more rain than expected, the river is going to be higher, which could mean flooding again, he said.

He said he will know more and see the forecast today.

"The closer we get, the more accurate information we'll probably have," he said.

Stahl said officials in his office, with assistance from Seneca County's Community Emergency Response Team, plan to do damage assessment today in the areas affected by river flooding. Damage assessments for properties impacted by stream flooding have been done, he said.

Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, sent a letter to Gov. John Kasich, offering to help him secure federal flood recovery resources.
