Remnants of Erin Expected To Soak State

Cleveland, OH (AP) - Storms that dumped heavy rain in Ohio over the past 24 hours may have been just a taste.

The National Weather Service says most of the state will be under a flood watch through late tonight as what's left of tropical storm Erin moves over the region. The forecasters say some areas could see up to four inches of rain that could cause flooding on roads and along creeks and streams.

Northeast Ohio won't get a whole lot of time to dry out from yesterday's drenching rains. Parts of the Cleveland area got two inches, making roads slick and contributing to accidents.

Early today, some low-lying streets in Columbus were briefly under water following overnight downpours.
