Green Family Loses Driveway

The Dowey family in the city of Green could only watch, as high water had just washed away their access to the outside world.

The flood waters destroyed the land bridge between East Nimisila Road and their home in the 1200 block.

They had just moved in a few weeks ago.

In addition to a lot of flooded basements mainly in the northern part of the county, the Tuscarawas River was out of its banks in several locations.
