Soggy Sunday across Central Ohio
COLUMBUS, Ohio —
Sunday's heavy rains across and cooler temperatures across much of central Ohio left neighbors hoping for a dry spell.
"I just got back from Florida, so I was enjoying the Florida weather, and then I was like, what am I doing back here?" said Pataskala resident Demetruce Johnson.
Johnson's home sits next to a steam that the Licking County emergency management agency said they're monitoring as heavy rains continue.
The Licking County EMA, along with the sheriff's office said so far, no problems with flooding or damage had been reported to their office.
Jay Carey, with the Ohio Emergency Operations Center, added while there were no reports of flooding issues across central Ohio, his office received reports of minor flooding along Lake Erie.
Carey said as rains continue, people should pay attention to the possibility of roads and streets covered in water.
He said drivers should always turn around, and find another route.
Carey added a majority of flooding deaths have resulted from attempts to drive through flooded roadways.
"Turn around, don't drown" Carey said.
