CINCINNATI (AP) - Heavy rain caused flash flooding that closed portions of some roads and downed trees in parts of southwestern Ohio and northern Kentucky in the Cincinnati area.

Strong thunderstorms dumped nearly 2-4 inches of rain Thursday in the Cincinnati metropolitan region on both sides of the Ohio River. Dispatchers reported a few water rescues in the early morning hours in Ohio’s Hamilton County. No injuries were reported.

A flash flood warning for Hamilton and Clermont counties in Ohio and Kenton and Campbell counties in Kentucky expired shortly after 8 a.m. Thursday. But the National Weather Service in Wilmington says some continued flooding is possible until high water from the earlier heavy rains recedes.

Additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain are likely in the area through early Friday morning.
