Remnants of Hurricane Katrina

Remnants of Hurricane Katrina moved through the Ohio Valley during the day and evening of Tuesday, August 30. Katrina brought generally 2 to 3 inches of beneficial rains to the region which helped to improve on the late summer moderate to severe drought. The only flooding reports came from the Cincinnati and Columbus metro areas, where 3 to 4 inches of rain caused ponding of water in some fields and several reports of high water on roadways. The only severe weather that Katrina produced in the region was a brief tornado (F0) touchdown just south of Morrow in Warren county.
