In the worst flooding in nearly a century, the town of Findlay, Ohio, received more than seven inches of rain in a month. Hundreds of residents have been forced from their homes, including Johnny Blaze, left, who was rescued via watercraft Wednesday with the help of Robert Evan, middle, and Dene Lynn. Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland declared a state of emergency in nine counties in northern Ohio where roads are impassable, schools have been closed and storm shelters opened.
