City begins Flood Action Plan


SIDNEY — The city of Sidney’s Flood Action Plan was initiated at noon on Wednesday, June 17, as the river level had reached 10.5 feet. Staff were monitoring the rainfall closely as the river was rising 10 inches an hour after the most recent rainfall, city officials said.

At this time, the river has not crested. City departments will continue to monitor the situation, officials said.

A copy of the plan, along with the latest river level, is available on the city of Sidney’s website www.sidneyoh.com.
