High water closes several roads in Union County

Local News

MARYSVILLE, Ohio (WCMH) — High water in Union County closed several roads Friday. 

Many residents say this flooding is the worst they’ve seen in a long time. 

“I’ve seen this road flooded, but I’ve never seen it come all the way back here,” said Cam Kerns. 

Areas of Union County received two and a half to three inches of rain which cause small creeks and streams to swell.

“Yeah, this is pretty crazy,” said Kerns. 

Several high water signs were up just west of Marysville. 

It caused some traffic headaches throughout this area.

The Allen Township fire department said it had to rescue five people this Friday morning because they got stuck trying to drive though high water.

“No matter which way you go there the roads are flooded out too,” said Union County resident Dan Miller. 

On North Darby Coe Road the high waters completely cover an area where there’s a lake.

“My parents skied here last night and it was fine,” said Kerns. 

Now he and his friend are out looking for their boat the high waters pushed away.

“We got a call from his dad tell him the boat was floating around and we had to go retrieve it,” said Carson Rengel. “We came out here but we don’t know
 how to get to it.”

ODOT said State Route 245 will be closed Friday night.
