  1. Advisory from ODNR/DOW

    WATERCRAFT ADVISORY ISSUED FOR SOUTHERN AND EASTERN OHIO



    COLUMBUS, OH - A watercraft advisory is in effect for southern and eastern Ohio this weekend as remnants of Hurricane Ivan are forecast to produce potentially heavy rainfall across much of those regions, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). Rains may cause flooding on some inland lakes, streams and rivers.

    The advisory includes central Ohio and will remain in effect until potentially high water conditions return to near normal or normal levels.

    Recreational boaters are advised to stay off any rivers or streams that may be near or above flood stage should heavy rainfall occur over the next five days. Some inland lakes may experience temporary closure of boat launch ramps. Higher lake levels also may produce navigational hazards such as floating debris.

    Ohioans also are reminded to avoid driving or walking across flooded roadways and bridges due to the risk of injury and drowning. Potentially heavy rainfall is expected in Ohio today and could continue throughout the weekend. Check local weather advisories for updated conditions
