Seasonal flooding comes as no surprise to Tristate officials, who have ordered a handful of road closures, and are preparing to close more as the Ohio River rises.  And the flooding has shined a spotlight on the relative isolation of a pair of Hamilton County communities.

River levels around Hamilton County are already high, and with more rain today and tomorrow, the sheriff's office and county engineer are preparing to close more roads.  Parts of Four Mile, Eight Mile, Debolt and Kellogg had water standing on them earlier this week.


Hop On Cincinnati is hoping local leaders will 'hop onto' the idea of creating a Downtown trolley.

The idea is to connect entertainment and attractions across Downtown and Mt. Adams. Hop On Cincinnati says the goal is increasing the downtown renaissance by connecting people to places.
