Defiance dodges 'big bullet'

From staff reports Published:

The significant flooding that was anticipated in Defiance didnt materialize over the weekend as weather forecasters missed heavy rain projections. On Saturday, local officials had feared the worst flooding in two decades would occur if the National Weather Service (NWS) was correct in forecasting more than an inch of rain that night. But the area received very little as storms approaching from the southwest died down considerably before reaching Defiance County.
