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

  Driftwood River...East Fork White River...Mississinewa River...
  Wabash River...White River...


.Lowland flooding continues along several area rivers as a result of
heavy rains over the last 2 weeks. Rainfall received Saturday will
prolong the ongoing flooding and caused additional flooding to
develop. While most areas are experiencing lowland flooding, the
Mississinewa at Ridgeville has moderate flooding.

Flooding has impacted or will continue to impact numerous local
roads, a few state highways, many river parks, low agricultural
land, and a few river cabins. Flooding will likely last into early
April in some areas.

Those with interests along area rivers should pay close attention to
changing river conditions and updated forecasts at least into next
week.


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.
