SENECA COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Seneca County took a direct hit from the Wednesday storms, and now a state of emergency has been declared for the county.
Tiffin may be one of the hardest-hit cities in the county. Thousands are still without power, parks and cemetery headstones were damaged by downed trees, and a roof was torn off of one house.
"It's just been a 1-2 punch of terrible storms," said Mayor Aaron Montz. "You think it's over, and then the waters begin to rise."
With two days of no rain, the water should be going down, but the Sandusky River continues to rise.
"We're hoping, at least for the public, when the commissioners declare a state of emergency, that obviously we get some funding to help out with the residents, but also, hopefully, give them a peace of mind that we are working, we're monitoring the situation," Montz said. "We're doing everything on our part to try to help those in need, because there is a lot of them right now."
The Sandusky River is creeping over its banks, threatening homes throughout Tiffin and Seneca County. Montz says it will be monitored until the water recedes.
"We've really been blessed recently, but unfortunately, today, we've just had too much," he said. "The ground is saturated and now we have the situation that's behind me, which is just far too much water to handle for the Sandusky River."
