Crews are dealing with high water on local roads as heavy rain fell across the Tri-State Tuesday morning, and some evacuations are being ordered.

High water along Ky. 17 in Kenton County near Pioneer Park has forced the evacuation of some residents. Dispatchers say some residents are evacuation willingly, while others are refusing to leave.

In Boone County, sheriff's office spokesman Tom Scheben says most of the low laying roads near creeks have anywhere from 2 to 6 inches of water on them.

The following roads are flooded in Boone County:

  • Richwood Road at Hicks Pike down to Chambers Road
  • Hicks Pike at Harrison Road
  • Frogtown Road near U.S. 42
  • Mt. Zion Road near Gunpowder, Weatherington and Golden Pond
  • Gunpowder at Sunnybrook
  • Beaver Road near McCoys Fork

Scheben says deputies are working diligently on identifying hazards and working to have barriers erected.

High water has also shut down parts of Union Centre Boulevard in Warren County, and in Clermont County, State Route 133 at Martin Road is closed for high water.

Interstate 75 just north of I-74 was temporarily shut down due to high water, as well. It has since been reopened.

Motorists are urged to us caution in these areas and do not attempt to cross roads with high water.

About 2 to 3 inches of rain were dumped on the Tri-State Tuesday morning. The rain is pushing out, but another round of severe weather is possible Tuesday night.

The following totals were reported Tuesday morning.

  • Mason - 1.88 inches
  • Hamilton - 2.31 inches
  • Goshen - 2.0 inches
  • Downtown - 3.0 inches
  • Cheviot - 2.48 inches

The Flood Warning that was in effect has expired, but a FLOOD WARNING is in effect for Brown, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton, Highland and Warren counties until 2:30 p.m.
