Flood Warning
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
854 PM EST Sat Nov 18 2017

...The National Weather Service in Indianapolis has issued a Flood
Warning for portions of the following river in west
central Indiana...

  Wabash River...


.Flooding has begun along the upper Wabash River at Lafayette,
Indiana, and the water level at Covington began showing a
noteworthy rise that started Saturday afternoon and which is expected
to continue through Sunday. The river level at Montezuma is
anticipated to begin rising later this evening and continue through
Sunday night. Crests at these locations are expected to be up to
5.5 feet above flood stage.

Rainfall up to nearly 3 inches fell over northern central Indiana
counties today.  Dry weather through the upcoming week will aid
recession of the water after the current surge moves through.

Flood water at its highest point may affect a few county roads and
top the Montezuma agricultural levee.  Lower agricultural land
likely will flood.


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.
