A look at flooding conditions in Crescent, Moon townships

In Crescent Township, the Ohio River is around 23 feet and is expected to crest around 25 feet. The Army Corps of Engineers says it’s similar to the spring rainfall we experienced in 2018. People are still taking precautions.

“Everyone’s down here trying to pull out their campers,” said Tina Yeater. “Their picnic tables and their decks.”

At Glenwillard Boat Club in Crescent Township, people secured camping equipment.

“It’s come up three feet since we’ve been here because we usually mark the ramp when we get here,” said Yeater.

They tied their docks up and moved their campers.

“We’ve been here before,” said Yeater. “It’s taken the roofs off our buildings.”
