More rain means more worries for Tiffin residents

TIFFIN, OH (Toledo News Now) -

It's been a rainy week and more is on the way, which has Tiffin residents worried about more possible flooding.

Earlier this week, the streets on the west end of Tiffin were covered in water after almost a week-long soaking of sporadic rainfall. Mayor Aaron Montz says the southeast side of Tiffin received four inches of rain in less than two hours Monday morning.

Montz says the storm water system in place was routing the water properly, but the problem may have been with the nearby Westgate shopping center retention pond.

For now, residents shouldn't worry about more flooding in the area, but should still be wary of flash floods.

 "The river is not going to reach flood stage," Montz said. "People just need to be aware, especially the low-lying county roads on the south side of the city…they flood when the ground is very saturated and you get these very heavy thunderstorms."
