Area flood watches cancelled
(2007-01-16)
(WOUB) - The flood watch has been cancelled for the Hocking River in Athens and the Muskingum River in McConnellsville.

The National Weather service says the rivers are not expected to reach flood stage and will begin a slow fall during the next day or two.

However, some backwater problems may persist until the rivers begin to recede.

The National Weather Service has also issued a new, lower crest prediction for the Ohio River at Marietta. The river is now forecast to crest at 31.7 feet early Wednesday morning. That's slight more than 3 feet below flood stage.
