The heavy rainfall over the past week saturated the ground and left new rainfall no where to go but creeks, roadways and fields. Precipitation is anticipated to continue until Monday and, though Morrow County is not suffering as badly as some Ohio counties, the damage to roads, culverts and fields will be expensive to repair or replace.

Pictured are samples of the heavy rain effect around the county. Residents in one home on TR 165 had to evacuate due to flooding.
