Tiffin man found dead in floodwater

A Tiffin man was found dead in floodwater at his house Tuesday.

Police responded to a call at 19 Marlyn St. in Tiffin where they found Ronald G. Martin, 58, of Tiffin, face down in floodwater from the Sandusky River. Martin was found in his front yard, according to the Tiffin Police Department. Police said it appeared Martin was leaving his house when he fell in the water.

No foul play is suspected, police said. Seneca County Coroner Mark Akers assisted in the investigation.

Areas of northwestern Ohio, including Findlay, were flooded earlier this week after heavy rainfall and melting snow combined to overflow rivers.
