Flood Warning
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
949 PM EDT Sun Aug 2 2020

...The National Weather Service in Indianapolis has issued a Flood
Warning for portions of the following waterways in central and
southern Indiana...

  White River...

.Heavy rainfall in southern Indiana over the past few days is pushing a portion of the lower White River into flood.  Rain gauge-corrected radar estimates for the 72-hour period ending 7 AM Sunday morning indicated 3 to 5 inches of rain fell over a large area from roughly Lawrence County, Illinois to Scott County, Indiana.  A small area of east central Daviess into central Martin counties in Indiana saw 7 to possibly more than 9 inches of rain during this time period!  Thankfully with drier soil lately the heavy rain is having much less impact than it could of.  The river is expected to go into flood tonight, stay below 2 feet above flood stage, and end by late Monday.  This will mainly affect agricultural land.


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.

For detailed flood information go to weather.gov/ind on the web and click on rivers and lakes.
