Port Clinton police: ‘Our little town is under water’

PORT CLINTON, Ohio - Port Clinton police have posted a warning to residents and visitors.

Much of Port Clinton is under water Sunday night as residents are still dealing with severe flooding caused by the high lake levels.

"Mother Nature has once again shown us who is in charge," the department wrote in a Facebook post.

Officers say Perry Street and Lakeshore Drive are impassable.

"Our little town is under water," the post states.

Police and city leaders are assessing the situation.

Port Clinton had issued a state of emergency in May, due to flooding.

Recent storms have caused heavy downpours in areas with already high waters.
