Boardman Police asking people to stay off streets due to flooding

Posted: Updated:
BOARDMAN TWP., Ohio -

Boardman Police Chief Todd Werth issued a statement Friday evening asking people to stay off the streets due to heavy flooding.

Due to the high rain volume, Boardman Township is experiencing flooding on several area Township, County and State roads. Several roads are impassable. Never attempt to drive into or through a flooded area. We are requesting that everyone refrain from any unnecessary travel till approximately 9:30 p.m. tonight. Due to the weather our Dispatch center is experiencing high call volume. If possible please contact us for emergency incidents only until that time as well. Please forward this message, and check on any neighbors or family members as appropriate. - Boardman Police Chief Todd Werth

Boardman Towing tells 21 News they have seen more than a dozen cars stuck in high water.

A nursing home across from Boardman Plaza was evacuated because flood waters caved in the doors. No one was injured, but residents were moved to a different floor. 

We also are getting numerous reports of flooded basements in Boardman Township.

In Struthers, a creek overflowed on Maplewood Ave. Streets and basements are flooded in that area. 

There are also several reports of flooding in Poland.
