Flood Warning


Flood Statement
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
1157 PM EST Tue Nov 21 2017

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


  Wabash River...White River...


.Flood warnings continue for the Wabash and White Rivers in central
and southern Indiana. This is the first flood event for the
Wabash River since July. High water along the White River was, or
will be, slightly higher than levels seen earlier in November.

Flooding is a result of 2 to nearly 4 inches of rain dumped by
thunderstorms on Saturday in central and northern Indiana along and
north of Interstate 70.

As of late Tuesday evening...the crest on the White River was
slightly downstream of Centerton. The flood crest will reach
Spencer tonight, Bloomfield Thursday, and Thursday night.  On the
Wabash River...the flood crest was slightly downstream of Covington
and is forecast to arrive in Terre Haute by Friday the 24th.

Little or no rain is expected this week.  Dry weather will allow
area creeks and rivers to recede rather quickly.


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
