NORTH BLOOMFIELD, Ohio -

Standing water is causing headaches for some who live along Route 45 near Norton Road in North Bloomfield.

Neighbors say water was ankle deep in their yard Thursday morning.

They tell 21 News they called the Ohio Department of Transportation to survey the damage. While they waited for crews to arrive, Heather Quiggle and her husband decided to dig a trench to divert the run-off water away from theirhome.

"We had to. We were out here brooming it; trying to push it in the grass," Quiggle said.

Quiggle says standing water along her street is an ongoing problem that she wants addressed.

ODOT spokesperson Justin Chesnic says crews decided to wait for the water to recede. Chesnic says the rain fell so fast that the drains couldn't keep up.
