Areas around the Ohio River experience flooding

The current river forecast is the 10th highest level ever in Louisville

On Tuesday, downpours and gusty thunderstorms will drench areas from central Texas to central Arkansas and southern Tennessee, AccuWeather said.

"That is a gate that will ultimately keep the Ohio River from protruding towards the residences here", MSD supervisor Tony Parrott said.

Flooding will continue to be a threat this week as more rain falls and runoffs continue, Accuweather said.

Roughly 70 rivers were in flood stage as of midday Monday in the central United States of America, the National Weather Service said.

Major flood stage is 38 feet at the Upper gauge.

The greatest concern in coming days will be in Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia on Wednesday into early Thursday. Temperatures will be in the 40s Wednesday, with small chances for light rain. Floodwaters on the Ohio River in Louisville reached its highest level in approximately 20 years, the Weather Channel said Sunday.

Meteorologist Kristen Cassady says while no rain is forecast until mid-week, tributaries feeding the OH will likely keep the river above flood stage throughout the week. The National Weather Service calculates the impact of flooding to affect homes on South Christianson Road and Happy Hollow Park.

In Cincinnati, Andrew Scheetz's basement was swamped by 4 feet of water. "Until the water recedes, we simply will not know". "Torrential, record-setting rain Saturday of 2.98" in Louisville exacerbated flood problems.

The river is expected to crest at 1 p.m. Monday at 36 feet.

"For as much water as there is out there, things are working like they're supposed to be working", said Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. Floodwaters in southwest and central OH are beginning to recede.

In northeast Arkansas, Albert Foster, 83, was killed when his trailer home toppled under high winds, Clay County Sheriff Terry Miller told KAIT-TV.
