Flood warnings remain in parts of Ohio as water from last week’s drenching rainstorms continues to swell some rivers and close some roads.

The National Weather Service said flood warnings remained in effect Sunday for the Maumee River in northwest Ohio, the Scioto River in central Ohio, and Killbuck Creek south of Cleveland.

The flood-prone Blanchard River finally receded below flood stage Saturday.

The weather service anticipates most lingering flooding will subside by early today, with the Scioto expected to recede about 3 a.m. Tuesday.

Relief may be brief, with a chance of rain or thunderstorms forecast each day today through Friday.
