High Water Causes Concern in Greene, Clark County
MIAMI VALLEY -- Inches of rainfall caused damage to homes, roads and crops Monday.
As if the weekend's showers weren't enough, the owners of Fulton Farms woke up to more rain, and crops under water.
Joyce Fulton says the steady rain kept her from the fields all day. She tells us until the standing water recedes it is impossible to know just how much damage she's looking at.
Over in Clark County, some neighborhoods woke up to submerged streets.
"This rain yesterday was as high as we've had for a long, long time. I can't remember ever seeing 3 inches in my side gate. That's a lot of water,"
George Snook of Springfield reflected.
Young's Dairy in Yellow Springs said the 3 inches of water in their parking lot kept some customers away, but they're no strangers to high water.
"We have a contingency plan, got a couple of sandbags to keep water from coming in the building, make sure pumps are working and that sort of thing," Dan Young explained.
A lot of rain in a short amount of time meant inches upon inches of water for some homes in Fletcher and Conover.
"My basement inside is full of water [and] I didn't even know it was raining," Lawrence Barnes exclaims in disbelief.
Some people throughout the Miami Valley continue to wait for the water to recede to truly access the damage.
YELLOW SPRINGS -- Areas of Clark and Greene counties experienced high water and flooding Monday morning.
"This morning I woke up at 7:30 and it was pouring down rain. It was white when you looked across," George Snook of Springfield recalled on Monday afternoon.
Snook has lived at his Springfield home for over 40 years. Although he says his neck of the woods is prone to flooding, this weekend's rain was one for the record books.
"This rain yesterday was as high as we've had for a long long time. I can't remember ever seeing 3 inches in my side gate. That's a lot of water," Snook said.
A lot of water that completely submerged a portion of Springfield Xenia Road in Yellow Springs.
Young's Dairy took their flooded parking lot in stride.
"We have a contingency plan, got a couple of sandbags to keep water from coming in the building, make sure pumps are working and that sort of thing," Dan Young of Young's Dairy explained.
Although Young says the extra water slowed down business, some customers still made their way inside.
"It was dry in the back there and wet in the parking lot. It was only 3 or 4 inches but they didn't want to get their sneakers wet."
Locals say the rain is a pleasant departure from last years stifling heat, but enough is enough.
"Weatherman says we're 3 inches under, I think we just caught up last night. We're back to square one," Snook joked.
