NWS: Water to recede steadily through weekend

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- After days of rainfall in Guernsey County, officials say that rising water levels have peaked.

According to the National Weather Service, the creek crested at 15.7 feet at around 4:00 a.m. on Friday. Fifteen feet is considered actual flood stage for Wills Creek.

The National Weather Service predicts that Wills Creek will subside to below flood stage by 8:00 p.m. on Friday.
