Due to the extensive rain the Columbus area experienced on Sunday, November 4, many streets and storm sewers are flooded. The flooding is also compounded by leaves in the streets and storm sewers, which inhibits drainage.
The Columbus Police Department and Department of Public Works employees have been out all Sunday evening dealing with flooded streets and putting up barriers as needed. They will continue throughout the night and into Monday clearing streets and working on alleviating the flooding.
Please use caution when driving and do not drive through high water. We would appreciate any help residents can provide by removing leaves and debris that may be clogging storm grates along their street.
