Ohio DOT reports roads closed due to flooding

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Department of Transportation is reporting a number of road closures as a result of flooding.

Flooding was reported in several areas, with a cluster of road closures reported in Noble County.

The National Weather Service says rain through much of the weekend had created the possibility of flooding in low-lying areas. Flash flood warnings are in effect for portions of central and southwest Ohio into Sunday morning.

Up to an inch of rain per hour was possible in some places.
