PAINESVILLE, Ohio -- Water levels in local rivers have receded significantly since the weekend, but not before they caused flooding in several communities.
The high water also caused road closures.
In Painesville, Kiwanis Recreation Park and Mills Road were closed Monday because of the swollen Grand River.
The Lake County Health District can be accessed from Latimore Street.
However, the river had dropped to about a foot below flood stage and continued to fall.
Huge ice chunks spilled up out of the banks.
In Willoughby, the Chagrin River spilled into parking lots and homes.
Once the water seeped into basements and garages, it was an hour by hour battle to save personal items, but the water was just too fast.
By Monday, water levels on the Chagrin River were also settling back to normal.
Rocky River is dealing with damage after moving ice busted apart boat docks and sent some floating downstream.
Rocky River police and fire say they will continue to monitor the situation along the river.
