CLEVELAND - Heavy weekend rains have left scores of low-lying roads and highways blocked across Ohio, with flood-prone Findlay among the hardest hit.
The state says some of the other hardest-hit highways are located in Sandusky, Seneca and Wood counties in rain-drenched northwest Ohio.
In Findlay located 47 miles south of Toledo, the Blanchard River has risen 12 feet since Friday to major flood-stage levels.
Three more feet of flooding would cut the city in two. The river crest forecast for Monday could be close to that level.
The river has flooded four times since 2007 in Findlay.
Rainfall eased up across parts of Ohio on Sunday.
