VIDEO: Drone Captures Images Of Aurora Flooding

By Mike Perleberg (Aurora, Ind.) – A local man’s video gives a bird’s eye view of the worst flooding in Aurora since 1997. YouTube user Jeff Scheel has posted many aerial drone videos of tri-state area landmarks. The latest video – which you can view in the above player – showing the swollen Ohio River snaking around buildings in downtown Aurora was published Sunday. In the nearly two-minute video, the drone travels north along State Road 56, where Lesko Park is consumed by the flood water along with State Road 56 and portions of other streets and structures. Areas along the Ohio River are still under a Flood Warning until Thursday afternoon. That’s when the river is expected to go back below flood stage for the first time in almost a week. With the flood waters beginning to subside, it is allowing those business and property owners affected to begin cleaning up. The Switzerland County Sheriff's Department announced Wednesday morning that State Road 56 between Vevay and Madison has reopened. The highway had been closed since Friday due to high water. As of 6:00 a.m. Wednesday, the Ohio River at Cincinnati is at about 54.4 feet. Flood stage is 52 feet. But we may not be completely out of the woods yet. Meteorologists are calling for a chance of rain Thursday night into Friday morning.
