More rain plagued the flood-stricken Ohio River valley Sunday, causing some streams to rise again and slowing the monumental cleanup from the area's worst deluge in more than three decades. Compared with the foot of rain that fell in the region a week ago, however, the new rains were more a nuisance than a threat to life and property. The Licking River, a tributary of the Ohio in central Kentucky, was rising again Sunday near Falmouth, a town devastated by last week's flooding.

Faced with threatening weather, authorities in Shadyside, Ohio, ordered the evacuation of residents in areas ravaged by deadly floods last week. Jean Curry, a spokeswoman at the Shadyside Disaster Center, said about 150 people were evacuated from along the Pipe and Wegee creeks. The National Weather Service issued a flood watch for southern Ohio and said as much as 3 inches of rain could fall in eastern Ohio, the same area where 5 1/2 inches created giant walls of water last week.

The death toll reached 22 as townspeople on Monday began burying those killed in the flash floods that ravaged a rural area near this Appalachian village last week. The search for those still missing turned to the debris-clogged Ohio River, and the body of a 13-year-old girl was recovered. The body of Kerri Polivka was found in the river about 3 miles below the mouth of Wegee Creek. She was visiting the home of a friend, 9-year-old Amber Colvin, when the flood struck Thursday.

Seven barges carrying gasoline broke free from a towboat Sunday on the Ohio River and spilled an estimated 40,000 gallons of fuel into the river after striking a railroad bridge piling, officials said. Recovery of the gasoline was impossible because it had been diluted, said Rich Carter, assistant chief of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Emergency Response. "No impact has been observed thus far," he said.

Small boats ferried Indianapolis residents from homes cut off by floodwaters.
