28 This is an extremely dangerous situation and will equal Irene in 2011 and the 1927 flood. If you live, work, or travel near the White river evacuate uphill now! The White River will cover the entire valley in some areas, and there will be widespread, devastating damage. Homes and businesses near the river will be inundated and some may be swept off their foundations. Portions of Routes 14 and 107 will be covered and will be damaged or destroyed.
25 There will be widespread inundation and damage to buildings and roads throughout the White River Valley. The force of water will inundate roads and highways along the river, and will likely wash away sections of roadway. Homes and businesses will be inundated by water and may sustain structural damage. This stage is equivalent to the FEMA 0.2 Percent Annual Chance Flood.
21 Route 14 will be flooded in several locations, and water will inundate homes and businesses near the river. There will be widespread flooding of fields and lowlands throughout the White River Valley. This stage is equivalent to the FEMA 1 Percent Annual Chance Flood.
