BATH TOWNSHIP, Ohio– It’s been almost a month since storms rolled through Northeast Ohio, causing widespread flooding.
Bath police posted some incredible video from May 12 on its Facebook page. It shows the intensity of the storms on W. Bath Rd. near the I-77 overpass. Take a look below.
Thursday, residents in one township met with the Army Corps of Engineers to voice their concerns about the storm cleanup.
“Right now, it’s in the laps of the homeowners, which is difficult for them to deal with,” said Becky Corbett, trustee.
Over 40 Bath Township homeowners attended a town hall meeting Thursday with the Army Corps of Engineers to address flooding along Yellow Creek.
"What used to be a babbling brook has turned into a raging river. And it's now at least 10 times as deep and wide as when we first moved here," said Brenda McShaffney, resident.
Resident after resident shared their frustrations.
Many are still dealing with the aftermath when the creek flooded on May 12.
"We're the ones that had the 30-foot trailer break our bridge, which was three feet higher than it needed to be for the Yellow Creek," said McShaffney.
"That famous trailer is now on my property. And that's a problem now. I don't know how they are going to get rid of it," added another neighbor.
Homeowners said they’ve been told it’s private property and their responsibility.
But a number of residents told the Army Corps on Thursday that the debris is floating downstream from other communities.
Township leaders said they’re listening but there's no simple solution here.
"Look, that's what the township wants, too. In working with the Army Corps and other agencies to evaluate to what impacts the amount of water that goes into Yellow Creek, what is flooding it, and where we can go in the future to eliminate some of this damage," added Corbett.
