Flooding issues are abounding in Richland County and other areas as the National Weather Service Office issued a flood warning that began late Sunday morning and runs until 11:30 a.m. Monday. Richland County Emergency Management Director Keith Markley says he believes for the most part, people in low-lying areas are keeping a watch on flooding issues and staying vigilant. Markley also addressed power outages that happened in the Shelby area and over in Sullivan in northern Ashland County over the weekend due to treacherous rainstorms. Local law enforcement agencies are reporting flooding near area rivers, streams and creeks and the flooding of some roadways. They caution the motoring public if they see flooding on roadways to turn around and not try to travel through them to avoid being stranded or possibly swept away.
