Flood Statement
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
1015 PM EST Sun Jan 19 2020

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

  East Fork White River...Wabash River...White River...

.Minor to moderate flooding continued Sunday night in central
and southern Indiana on the major rivers.  Primary crests will
be/are comparable to those that occurred in February and June of
2019.  Flooding on lower portions of the East Fork White came to an
end earlier this evening.

A mix of precipitation Friday and Saturday totaled around an inch to
an inch and a half across the basin, which is slowing
river falls in some cases and bringing lower secondary crests in
other cases on the major rivers.  While flooding on much of
the East Fork White has ended, flooding is expected to continue at
Seymour on the East Fork White until Wednesday morning.

Flooding along the lower portions of the White and Wabash Rivers
will continue until about Wednesday, January 29.

Little or no precipitation is forecast through midday Thursday.
This will give area waterways several days to drain and return to
near normal levels.

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.
