Flood Damage Images - 2003
 
June 15, 2003

Heavy rains from slow-moving thunderstorms on June 15, 2003 produced flash flooding in Butler County, causing extensive property damage as well as damage to roads and culverts. Several culverts were washed out resulting in road closures. Bridges were inspected closely following the storms, and while no damage was reported, significant amounts of debris had to be cleared from around bridge piers. Areas hardest hit by the flooding were Milford, Hanover, and St. Clair Townships, the Village of New Miami, and the City of Fairfield. Nearly six inches of rain fell within a few hours in some locations.

While not as severe or as extensive as the flash floods that struck Butler County July 17-18, 2001 (see story and damage photos), damage to roads and culverts will place an additional funding burden on the BCEO this year. What follows are some photos of the flood damage and debris.
