...A Flood Warning continues for portions of the following river in
Indiana...

  Wabash River...

.Flood warnings continue for the Wabash River in central Indiana.

thunderstorms on Saturday in central and northern Indiana along and
north of Interstate 70.

As of late Wednesday morning, the crest on the Wabash River was
approaching Montezuma and is forecast to arrive in the Terre Haute
area by Friday the 24th.

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

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.
