Severe Threat Gone but Flash Flooding is Occurring

Radar has confirmed a tornado in Mercer County

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Flash Flood Watch continues until 4 am EST Monday.

Storm Team 2 Chief Meteorologist  Brian Davis says the threat for severe weather has ended, but heavy rainfall producing flooding is happening now.  As a matter of fact, water rescues have been taking place in Huber Heights, the Dayton Metro Area and a report of US 35 shutdown at James H. McGee.

Some locales are receiving up to 4 inches of rainfall in a very short amount of time.  Please stay vigilant if you are planning on traveling on area roadways this evening.  If you see flooding, be sure to turn around, don’t drown. It only takes about 6 inches of water to cause your vehicle to float.

The Northern Indiana office of the National Weather Services posted these images to Twitter of Sunday’s tornado damage.

A 2 NEWS viewer sent us photos of the damage caused as storms moved through Celina.
