Neighborhood evacuated due to flooding

GROESBECK, OH (FOX19) -

Colerain Township residents are being let back in their homes after being evacuated Monday morning due to flooding.

The area of Blanchetta and Sheldon flooded after a line of heavy rain moved through.

Several vehicles and homes were either submerged or partially under water. Several rescues were also performed.

Residents were asked to evacuate their homes or apartments. Those living on Blanchetta say its a familiar situation because the area is prone to flash flooding.

Manhole covers and sewer lids were also been dislodged due to the pressures of the rising waters in the sewer system.  

Some residents say they have up to four feet of water in their basements. They were let back into their homes after the rain stopped and the water began to recede.
