High water

If the predictions of Ohio River stages are correct, it looks like Wheeling is having some pretty high water, with the rest of the river below us expecting to crest in the next day, two or three.

It looks in several places like this could be one of the highest crests since the flood of 1997. It won't top the flood of 2011, but it might come close.

It should crest at Huntington on Monday, Maysville on Tuesday and Cincinnati on Wednesday, which is as far out as the National Weather Service is predicting.

So tomorrow I hope to head up the river and see if the community of Glenwood is under water. That's usually the first place in my part of the river where a main road gets blocked because of high water.
