The Ohio River below the dam is forecast to crest at 65.9 feet. That's considered moderate flooding, which is not very common in that area, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Wayne Hoepner.

"Significant road flooding occurs in Newport, Kentucky".

Michigan State Police say a 1-year-old girl has been found dead in standing water in her backyard. Six Nations Social Services Gym located at 15 Sunrise Court is also on standby to open as a Reception Centre for community members, if needed.

The child's name wasn't immediately released.

Heavy rain is likely this weekend.

Officials say they expect floodwaters to top Owensboro's downtown riverwall Saturday morning, posing only minor risks to mechanical equipment and marble paneling in Smothers Park.

River flooding followed several days of occasionally heavy rain in northwest OH and southeast MI.

If water enters the residence, unplug all electrical appliances to avoid electrocution.

The National Weather Service said a number of MI rivers could see record levels in the coming days.

The city had declared a state of emergency on Wednesday and ordered residents in neighbourhoods near the river to leave their homes. Students from schools were also rescued.

"And before we even get to the weekend, we're going to have creek flooding and landslides", Vargo said. No students were injured.

Brantford Mayor Chris Friel said the Lorne Bridge and BSAR bridge will remain closed until the Ministry of Transportation completes its structural reviews, and evacuation orders for residents will remain in effect until at least noon on Thursday.

Rain is expected to continue throughout the day and into Saturday night, potentially adding 2-4 inches of rain to what has already fallen earlier in the week.

Crews are using boats to help northern IN residents amid flooding from melting snow and heavy rain moving across the Midwest. At 20 feet, some evacuations may be necessary in low, unprotected areas of Riverhaven. He says sandbags are being made available. A southern storm system is forecast to move north into the southeastern parts of the state.

Shelters in IN and MI have been activated as heavy flood waters have inundated parts of both states.

The weather service urged drivers to be cautious at night, when it's harder to recognize flooding.

In southwestern MI, sandbags were filled to protect homes and businesses in the village of Mattawan as the Mattawan Creek rose above its banks.

The river has not reached this level since the 1997 flood, when the river crested at 64.7 feet.

Winter weather advisories are in effect for an area stretching from southwestern IL to Texas.

In Indiana, record-high flooding along the St. Joseph River closed down a waste-water treatment plant for several hours in South Bend, a city of about 100,000 residents. One person was evacuated this morning.

A Flood Warning will be issued as flooding is ongoing or imminent.
