KALIDA, Ohio (AP) - Flooding that has closed dozens of roads in rural northwestern Ohio is leaving one village completely cut off in Putnam County.

The sheriff’s office said Wednesday morning that all roads leading into Kalida (kuh-LEYE’-duh) are blocked by floodwaters.

Heavy rains over the last week have led to flooding in and around the cities of Findlay and Lima (LEYE’-muh). Those areas are bracing for more rain and flooding later Wednesday.

The rising Blanchard River in Ottawa has closed several streets there and in Findlay.

Police officers and firefighters around Lima helped evacuate dozens of people from a couple of apartment complexes on Tuesday.

So far, there haven’t been any reports of injuries from the flooding.
