After the rain had passed, cooler air rushed into the Little Miami River Valley over the relatively warm flood waters and created fog from Spring Valley to Waynesville.
The river flooded several roads, which were closed to traffic and remained closed on Monday, Feb. 26:
- Washington Mill Road
- Stewart Road
- Lower Bellbrook Road
- Corwin Avenue
State Route 725 in Bellbrook, which flooded last week and was closed, did not appear to have flooded and was open to traffic on Monday.
