...A Flood Warning continues for portions of the following rivers in
central and southern Indiana...

  Wabash River...White River...Wildcat Creek...


.Flooding warnings continued for the Wabash and White Rivers in
central and southern Indiana.  This is the first flood event for the
Wabash River since July.  High water along the White River was or
will be slightly higher than levels seen earlier in November.

Flooding is a result of 2 to nearly 4 inches of rain dumped by severe
storms on Saturday in central and northern Indiana along and north of
I-70.

As of early Monday afternoon...the White River was at or near crest
in the Indianapolis area.  The flood crest in the Spencer ...
Bloomfield and Edwardsport areas will arrive by Friday.  On the
Wabash River...the flood crest passed Lafayette early Monday
morning. The river will crest north of I-70 by Saturday and south of
I-70 by Tuesday...November 28.

Little or no rain is expected this week.  Dry weather will allow
creeks and rivers to recede rather quickly.

Precautionary/Preparedness Actions...

Motorists should never drive into flood water. Turn around and go
another way. Keep children away from flooded areas. Recreational and
agricultural interests should remain alert to changing river
conditions.
