For Immediate Release… April 20, 2011

Areas Being Closely Watched for Possible Flooding

Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones reports that Patrol Deputies are currently closely monitoring several areas for potential flooding, and the Marine Patrol Unit has been placed on standby alert in the event that rescue or evacuation efforts are needed. Areas specifically targeted for the close watch include Warwick Road and Hogue Road in St. Clair Township, the Cedar Grove subdivision (just south of Sevenmile) also in St. Clair Township, and along State Route 177 (Thompson Park area) in Hanover Township.

These areas are in close proximity to Four Mile Creek and Seven Mile Creek. Recent heavy rains and storms have contributed to the rise in water levels. If the rains continue, or more rain is received in areas to the north of these creeks, the threat of flooding is enhanced. Motorists traveling in these areas are cautioned to not drive through standing water if observed on roadways. The water may not appear to be too deep, but it is often impossible to be sure.
