Flood Statement

458 PM EST Sun Nov 19 2017

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

  East Fork White River...Mississinewa River...Wabash River...White
  River...Wildcat Creek...


.Heavy rainfall Saturday of up to nearly 3 inches, as estimated
by radar, fell across northern central Indiana. The heaviest
of this rainfall fell from eastern Warren County to Howard County,
and northern Fountain County to Hamilton County.

Moderate flooding is expected for a short time in the Lafayette area
as the river level comes to a crest tonight. This will affect all
parks in Lafayette and West Lafayette, some state, county, and local
roads, river cabins, and many acres of agricultural land. Flooding of
this extent has not been seen in this area since mid-July.

Dry weather is in the forecast and will thus aid bringing an end
to the flooding. The crest along the Wabash River is expected to
reach Covington Monday night, Montezuma late Tuesday, and then Terre
Haute Wednesday night.

Flooding on the White River is expected to be much less extensive
due to not receiving as much rainfall, with crests no more than
about 1.5 feet above flood stage. The crest late Sunday afternoon
was near Muncie, and should reach Ravenswood Monday morning,
Elliston Thursday morning, and then Edwardsport Friday evening.

Flooding along central/southern Indiana area rivers may last into
early next week.  Additional flood warnings may be needed for this
event.


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.
