Most Ohio counties are still under a flash flood watch as another day of rain adds to rising waters in yards and roadways.
    
Ohio residents were finding yards and parking lots turned into lakes as many parts of the state have seen at least some rain every day for about two weeks.
    
People had to be evacuated from their homes Tuesday because of flooding in the villages of Corning and Crooksville in Perry southeast of Columbus.
 
Red Cross officials said that 14 people were housed overnight in a shelter at the Corning Community Center. One person was staying at the Crooksville Red Cross shelter.

In Bellville in Richland County, many roads were closed leading into town.

The water level of the Clear Fork River reached around 15 feet around 2 a.m.

The Red Cross set up cots for evacuees at the Jefferson Township/Bellville Fire Station on Main Street.
    
Serious flooding also was reported in Morrow County north of Columbus and Athens County in southeastern Ohio.

According to the Red Cross, 75 people were evacuated from an apartment complex in Mt. Gilead in Morrow County on Tuesday.

Residents of northwestern Ohio were keeping an eye on fast rising creeks and rivers, including the Sandusky River in Tiffin and the Blanchard River in Findlay.
    
No injuries have been reported.
