Wabash River since July. High water along the White River was, or
will be, slightly higher than levels seen earlier in November.

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

another way. Keep children away from flooded areas. Recreational and
agricultural interests should remain alert to changing river
conditions.
