High water roundup

The Ohio River has almost crested here at Huntington, with another few inches expected in the daylight hours today before it drops about six feet to near normal levels by Saturday.

The Ohio is supposed to crest tonight at Cincinnati and late tomorrow at Louisville.

The weather system that has brought high water to the Ohio River is affecting other rivers in the Midwest, too. It could affect farmland in the lower Mississippi for a couple of weeks or more.
