CINCINNATI (WLWT) —The Newport Aquarium is currently closed due to a power outage, aquarium officials said.

Officials with the aquarium said they are working with Duke Energy to restore power.

Any pre-purchased tickets for Sunday will be honored at any future date, they said.

The aquarium’s power outage comes as many across the area are struggling with a similar issue.

Heavy rains pushed across the Cincinnati area Saturday night into Sunday morning, inundating Cincinnati area roadways and homes.

Several roadways were closed — particularly Sunday morning — as blasts of heavy rain moved through the area.

The flooding caused thousands of power outages across the area and multiple landslides.
