PROJECT ALERT NOTICE (OH) Minor flooding in Northeast Ohio

Date: Wed, 28 Sep 2022 08:37:31 EDT

Summary: Minor flooding is impacting northeast Ohio.

A cold core upper level system is currently affecting northeast Ohio as cold air and a northerly flow is traversing over relatively warm Lake Erie water. The result of this is widespread 2 to 4 inch rain amounts right along the lakeshore and 20 miles inland from the Cleveland area all the way up to Erie, Pennsylvania.

There are no record peaks and only minor flooding is occurring as precipitation has been steady but not overly heavy. The area has been in a Flood Watch since yesterday.

The Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana has one crew (two people) that will make measurements in the Cleveland area along Mill Creek and Doan Brook, then will measure Conneaut Creek to fill a gap in the rating.

USGS has been in contact with the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District who is the main cooperator for river gages in the Cleveland area.
