The Ohio River is still out of its banks, and according to the National Weather Service, still climbing. The river is now expected to hit 57 feet at Cincinnati, five feet above flood stage, and half a foot higher than predicted Wednesday.

Cincinnati Police closed Mehring Way between Elm and Central Avenue, and Kellogg between Wilmer and Delta Thursday morning.
