High Water Hassles

High water is causing some headaches along Ohio State Route 821.

Just south of Whipple, several areas of the road were covered with water Monday.

Along with street flooding, some people's gardens and corn fields are also suffering water damage.

Residents say this is fairly common for the area, and one repair shop owner says he always expects his phone line to stay busy on days like this.

"We get a lot of calls. People know we've been here. They call the business; ask if the road's closed, how much water's on the road. We get that all the time. We've probably had 20 calls already today," Dan Schott, owner of Schott's Repair Services, said.

Schott says Duck Creek Watershed is working with the Army Corp of Engineers to put a flood warning system in the area.
