Ivan has hit the Ohio Valley. The remnants of Ivan have pushed the already water-saturated ground to the limits. Over the last couple of days, there has been water running everywhere. The creeks and river are overflowing. Since I haven’t been able to get photos, I’m including this photo from the local TV station. It is of Elm Grove; a place I work sometimes near Wheeling. This is how part of the main street of my city looked yesterday. Every major roadway has been closed for at least a short amount of time over the last couple of days. Some roads are closed indefinitely because of water damage, debris, or slipping hillsides. People have been evacuated from many areas; including the creek that flows near my home. One of my nephews offered availability of his fishing boat to emergency services and did some evacuations yesterday evening.
