We have had over 30 hours of continuous rain in the last two days. Here at the house, we have had 3.29" of rain, but areas to the south have had 3-6" of rain in the same time period. As a result, school was closed today (Wednesday, March 19) due to the rising level of area creeks, streams, and rivers.

The radar image on the left is from the Wilmington, Ohio NWS and is a radar estimate of rain that has fallen since 1pm on Monday, March 17 through today. The second map below, is observed rainfall totals from 7am Tuesday, March 18 through 7am Wednesday, March 19. You can see that in the Evansville area, up to 7 inches of rain had already fallen. I am certain that when today's rain is added to that there were areas with 9 inches of rainfall.

I'm working on uploading some video of the flooding from the Cincinnati area.
