Flooded roadways, high water and structural damage all hit Ohio after overnight storms.


Communities throughout Ohio are cleaning up damage after overnight storms, but flooded roadways and high water are still active dangers in the area.

Nearly a half foot of standing water spilled over parts of Canal Road in Valley View, causing problems for homeowners and drivers alike.

Police still had sections of Canal Road blocked off Sunday morning due to high water.

Meanwhile, several nearby homes on Frosdick Road had a pool of water in their front yards.

According to the National Weather Service, the Cuyahoga River peaked at 18.25 feet early Sunday, while the Black River rose to more than 14 feet.

The Erie Canal Towpath trail and Polar Express were also forced to close overnight due to excessive flooding.

Several area roadways were also shut down through the early morning hours including Vrooman Road in Painesville and Riverview & Vaughn Roads in Brecksville.

Down south in Sullivan, several barns experienced structural damage, after winds ripped off parts of their roofs.
