Abstract

A high-intensity summer rain estimated at 8 inches in 2 hours caused flooding on a small stream near Thornville, Ohio, destroying a culvert and highway fill on State Highway 188. Computation of peak discharges of 3,250 cubic feet per second above and 4,050 cubic feet per second below the culvert indicates a greater than 100-year flood. (USGS)
