Ice causing rivers to overflow in Northeast Ohio

Associated Press

CLEVELAND: Flooded roads are a concern for people who live in communities near two overflowing rivers in northeast Ohio.

The National Weather Service issued flood warnings until noon Monday for southwestern Lake County and northeastern Cuyahoga County as the Chagrin River backed up due to ice buildups.

A flood warning also was in effect for the Rocky River, west of Cleveland.

Some roads in Willoughby were closed by mid-afternoon Sunday as the Chagrin River overflowed onto the streets. A number of residents voluntarily left their homes.

Some residents of the suburb of Rocky River — where the river of the same name empties into Lake Erie — voluntarily left their homes because of the rising water.
