Auglaize County dealt with its fair share of flooding following the downpours of Monday night.

The Auglaize County Highway Department confirms that over fifty locations in the northern part of the county saw high water build up. Currently, all but one of the locations have dried up or drained down. Now it's a matter of quick and efficient clean-up prior to the potential of more rain.

"We're still concerned, there's a chance of rain I think you know, throughout the rest of the week and again unless we get the debris cleaned out away from the culverts, away from the catch basins, it won't take much of a rain to create the same situation so a lot of clean up to do that we're going to keep at it, especially concentrated in those places where we did post high water so we don't have a recurrence," said Auglaize County Engineer, Douglas Reinhart.

The lone road still dealing with high water is Townline-Lima Road near the Auglaize River.
