The states of Ohio, Michigan Kentucky and Indiana continued to be swamped by high water from both heavy rains and melting show. In combination with the rain expected for the weekend across the Southern Plains and the Midwest, this could risk further evacuations for those already under a lot of strain.

In Ohio, Mr Bob Lees tried to see the funny side of things in all this hardship. "We're trying to keep spirits up."

Mr Lees runs the Front Street Cafe in New Richmond and claimed that the opening song picked for last night’s music session was "Cry Me A River."

The National Weather Service said current forecasts “will contribute to a significant risk of flash flooding,” and warned that “people in the risk areas should be prepared to encounter flooding.”

In Kentucky, Governor Matt Bevin warned of “continued heavy rainfall events which have caused widespread flooding and damage to critical infrastructure across Kentucky” and thus decided to declare a state of emergency.
