The National Weather Service has issued an urban and small stream flood advisory until 9:15 p.m. tonight for parts of Allen County, Indiana, and Defiance and Paulding counties in Ohio.

At 7:16 p.m., the weather service said, radar indicated thunderstorms with very heavy rain along a line from eight miles east of New Haven, Indiana, to eight miles north of Ottawa, Ohio, moving southeast at 15 mph.

Rainfall of 2 to 2.5 inches in an hour was indicated along parts of that line, the weather service said.

It said people should not drive into areas where the water covers the road, instead moving to higher ground.
