Tribune Chronicle | TribToday.com

LEAVITTSBURG - The Mahoning River seems to be subsiding after cresting at a near-record level.

According to the National Weather Service, the river was at 12.78 feet at 9:15 a.m. after cresting at 16.21 feet about 11 p.m. Thursday.

The flood, a result of nearly four inches of rain that doused the Mahoning Valley on Wednesday, spurred voluntary evacuations of portions of the Meadowbrook Drive area of the township.
