Ole Man River Risin'....

This has been a crazy spring with the Ohio River spilling over its banks on several occasions. With a "pool" level of about 25', the recent river crest at over 57' was substantial and a bit scary. Roads were closed and even some houses were subsumed by the swelling river. The Village of New Richmond (and surrounding communities) were inundated by media capturing the wrath and power of mother nature.

While the river retreated to within its banks, the river is risin' again. To the left is a hydrograph from the National Weather Service predicting the water level over the next few days.......wet and fast...The true flood stage is 52', and we hope not to see that level again anytime soon

Stay dry and while we encourage all to "Get Outside and Play," please do so safely
