High water remains in several areas of Butler County

TRENTON, OH (FOX19) - Several areas along the Great Miami River in Butler County remained flooded Tuesday.

The recent rains have caused a mess near Trenton.

"We were coming down here to go to the gospel church down here to decorate for Christmas," said Christy Frongia. "The water is just a little to high for us and I'm just to afraid to drive through it."

Residents living south of Hwy. 73 between Trenton and Middletown have learned to accept flooding, but many say they haven't seen water levels get this high in a long time.

"It's been a couple years since we have seen it this high," said Frongia.

With expected freezing temperatures over the next few days residents have an added concern.

"The water alone is bad, but when you mix in the ice and possible snow," said Frongia. "I wouldn't be coming down here if it icy at all."
