PORT CLINTON, Ohio (AP) -- Floodwaters have receded but telltale water lines remain on buildings in a northern Ohio city that received about 6 inches of rain during six hours.
U.S. Geological Survey hydrologist Greg Kolton tells the Sandusky Register ( http://bit.ly/o2bamJ ) that Sunday's rainfall in Port Clinton is the sort of event that happens once in 500 years.
Flooding forced a small hospital to move three of its six patients and discharge the others. On Monday, a watermark was visible about 10 inches from the ground on Magruder Hospital's glass doors. Spokeswoman Elisabeth Brand says ankle-deep water filled the hospital's lobby on Sunday.
Residents complain that floods occur frequently in Port Clinton, 35 miles east of Toledo. Mayor Debbie Hymore-Tester says projects to improve the storm and sewer systems should provide relief.
