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 Route 188. Computation of peak discharges of 3,250 feet3 per second at a site 4,400 feet above and of 4,050 feet3 per second at a site 3,250 feet below the culvert indicates a greater than 100-year flood.
