1129 AM EDT Sun May 26 2019

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

  Mississinewa River...Wabash River...White River...


.Recent rounds of precipitation have led to river flooding on the
Wabash and White Rivers in western Indiana.  Heavy rainfall
overnight in the Ridgeville area has brought flooding to the
Mississinewa River, with moderate flood stage expected to be reached
by noon today, May 26.  This should bring water to State Road 1 south
of the junction with State Road 28 in western Randolph County.
Flooding along the Wabash and White Rivers is expected to persist,
but flooding on the Mississinewa should come to an end by tonight.

Several more rounds of rain are expected over the next week, which
could lead to prolonged or renewed flooding along waterways.


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.
