Flood warning in effect for parts of Franklin, Fairfield, Licking counties


COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A flood warning is in effect for parts of northwestern Fairfield, eastern Franklin and southwestern Licking counties.

The warning is in effect until 8 p.m. Tuesday.

The National Weather Service reported a little before 3 p.m. that heavy rain has ended in the area but that lingering high water was the cause of the flood warning being issued.

Between 1.5 and 3 inches of rain have fallen in the area, with more on the way. Tonight and tomorrow, expect more muggy conditions, rain and storms as moisture left over from tropical storm Fred moves into Ohio.

On the East Side of Columbus, the ramps connecting I-270 South with I-70 were closed because of high water.
