WATCH: Flooding covers roadways in Mercer County

Local News

MERCER COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – It may be fairly dry outside today, but footage released by the Ohio Department of Transportation shows the severity of flooding that still plagues Mercer County residents.

ODOT officials say if you encounter high waters, do not try to drive through them. Instead, turn around and find another way to get where you need to go.

Another round of heavy rain this week caused flooding issues for northern parts of the Miami Valley, and Flash Flood Warnings were in place for several hours Wednesday in counties such as Auglaize, Logan, Mercer, and Shelby.

In Mercer County, several roads remain closed due to high waters.
