Flooding in Leavittsburg leaves popular roads impassable

Flooding in Trumbull County has made some roads impassable.

LEAVITTSBURG, OH (WKBN)- The National Weather Service has extended the flood warning for Eagle Creek at phalanx station until 8 a.m. with the water being recorded at 9 and a half feet.

On the evening of June 1, the water level was recorded at 11 feet, making Barclay Messerly Road and McConnell East Road in Leavittsburg impassable.

Local residents say they are used to it and it happens with almost all moderate to heavy rainfall and sometimes the flooding can even last for days. 

Leavittsburg resident Mary Hartman explained the situation.

“It’s a cross over from Nelson Mosier to Eagle Creek.” Hartman said, “I wouldn’t come this way…I don’t come with my small car…never.”

It is good to remember to never drive your vehicle thru a flooded road because you never know how deep the water can be.

Eagle Creek should be under flood stage by June 2.
