The rain and wind storm over the weekend left some damage in its wake. High water has receded in Bellville, but not at a flood-prone intersection north of Mansfield. Richland County Emergency Management Director Keith Markley says the Clear Fork in Bellville overflowed Sunday morning, forcing Route 13 to be closed for about six hours, but the water did not get into nearby buildings. The Black Fork in Shelby did not overflow. Both rivers are back down to near normal levels. But the intersection of State Routes 13 and 96 is closed due to flooding. A tornado did not blow through northern Richland County as many people suspect, but the area around Route 96 has numerous trees down and some structural damage. The storm also cut power to parts of Shelby, and in the Ganges Five Points Road area. Markley says the Federal Emergency Management Agency will not be providing financial assistance to the owners of damaged properties. He encourages you to report the damage to his office, and contact your insurance company.
