CINCINNATI - As the morning rains move to the east, crews are feverishly working to clean and clear flooded roadways in several western Cincinnati neighborhoods. Along with low-lying areas along the river in East Cincinnati, areas like Cleves and Addyston have received a massive amount of rains causing several roads and businesses to be flooded.
Crews have been out most of the evening and this morning trying to clear the flooded areas, many of which have received several inches of rain from heavy storms most of Friday afternoon and into Saturday morning.
With a number of areas along River Road seeing high water, police and rescue authorities ask that you be careful if you approach intersections or roads with high water and pay attention to any road signs warning you away from it.
9 News weather forecaster Rachel Aissen says there will be another round of rain early this afternoon before the weather clears for good. That rain may also impact the roadways.
Also, power outages in the Tri-state are on the decline after the bad weather. If you want to see what areas are without power, you can find that information on the Duke Energy website by clicking on the link HERE.
We will continue to monitor flooding and other weather related damage here on WCPO.com and will have a complete wrap-up along with the forecast for the rest of your weekend on 9 News at 6 and 11 p.m.
