Flooding concerns continue Tuesday

Flooding concerns in Trumbull County, Ohio

NILES, Ohio (WYTV) – Trumbull County could see more flash flooding conditions Tuesday with another round of rain overnight.

Niles has been one of the cities hardest-hit by flash flooding. Residents of a mobile home park in on Difford Drive, along Route 422 across from the Eastwood Mall, were swamped with over a foot of water.

Residents of the Buckeye Mobile Home Park found themselves knee-deep in water at one point — with the water up to the steps and doors of about a dozen trailers.

Sewer drains clogged with debris, combined with the heavy rain may have led to the flooding.

Niles Police said Tuesday morning that the city street department was out in full force, checking other sewer drains, and making sure streets were free of high water.

High water concerns also remain in Warren Tuesday, after many people got trapped in their cars from rising water. Storm drains clogged with debris may be causing the problem.

The flood-prone areas of Phalanx Station at Eagle Creek and Leavittsburg are also seeing very high water Tuesday.

Flooding wasn’t the only problem closing roads in Trumbull County overnight A tree fell over Nelson-Mosier Road in Braceville Township.

Neighbors said storms sent the tree crashing onto the road around 3:30 Tuesday morning, bringing down a couple of power lines with it. An Ohio Edison worker arrived to cut the electricity.
