Story: More about Bellevue, the Ohio town enduring a four-week flood - Dozens of homeowners have been draining their basements around the clock for four straight weeks. Others have given up because the water just keeps flowing. What's unusual is where the water is coming from — it's seeping up from the ground through cracks in the limestone buried beneath this northern Ohio town. A mix of heavy rains and melting snow in recent months has left the ground saturated and the water has nowhere to go but up. It has buckled concrete basement floors, cracked foundations and closed several streets and roads, including a busy state highway. How much all of the repairs will cost isn't known yet. Much of the damage is centered on the north and east sides of the city and its surrounding townships. But most of the city is completely dry.

They are warning people living on the north shore of the west island, Laval, and some municipalities to the west of the city of Montreal, that they could be experiencing full-fledged flooding by next Tuesday. That's all due to the unseasonably warm temperatures they've been experiencing over the past few days, and the rapidly rising water levels.
