Deadly storms hit heart of the country; more flooding expected”

The National Weather Service has extended flood warnings for the St. Joseph River above Newville and the North Branch Elkhart River at Cosperville.

A new storm is expected to bring additional weather misery this week to areas struggling to recover from a relentless series of weekend storms and tornadoes. Temperatures will be in the 40s Wednesday, with small chances for light rain.

The latest river forecast takes the Ohio River above the dam (Upper gauge) close to major flood stage, with a crest of 36.1 feet by Monday afternoon - which would be the second highest in over 50 years.

Days after the Ohio River inundated greater Cincinnati, the river remained at a moderate flood stage Monday, and officials warned residents that coming rain would keep floodwaters elevated through the end of the week. The National Weather Service calculates the impact of flooding to affect homes on South Christianson Road and Happy Hollow Park.

On Sunday, parts of downtown Cincinnati were under water.

According to information provided by the weather service online, the Ohio River locally reached a maximum height of 52.7 feet.

"In 24 hours, these pumps are putting 11 billion gallons back into the river, so imagine if these pumps break down what would happen inland to our city", Mayor Greg Fischer said. Two bodies were also recovered from submerged vehicles in separate incidents in the state Saturday. In southwestern MI, where the body of a 48-year-old man was found in floodwaters Sunday in Kalamazoo, the Kalamazoo River was receding after peaking above a 1947 record.

In northeast Arkansas, Albert Foster, 83, was killed when his trailer home toppled under high winds, Clay County Sheriff Terry Miller told KAIT-TV.
