Flood Statement
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
1226 PM EST Sat Feb 16 2019

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

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


.Flooding continued along the Wabash, White, and East Fork White
Rivers mid-day Saturday. The rivers were in the moderate flood stage
level at Mount Carmel, Petersburg, and Hazleton...the same as
on Friday. Shoals fell below moderate Saturday morning. With the
exception of a minor rise expected at Covington of about half a
foot, the rivers are falling and this trend is expected to continue.
Flooding will last as long as February 24th in southwest Indiana.

Flooding is affecting local and state roads, cabins, widespread
agricultural land, and possibly a few homes.

Upcoming precipitation is expected to be around one tenth of an
inch Saturday night into Sunday followed by dry weather Monday and
much of Tuesday. Heavier precipitation, between a quarter and a
half inch, is predicted for Tuesday evening through Wednesday
evening. This could lead to prolonged flooding in southwest Indiana
and perhaps even some new rises on area 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.
