...The Flood Warning is extended for the following rivers in

East Fork White River, White River.

...The Flood Warning continues for the following rivers in Indiana...

Wabash River, White River.

.A combination of snow melt, plentiful rainfall, and partially
frozen ground has led to flooding along much of the Wabash River,
White River south of Centerton, and portions of the East Fork White
River in western, central, and southern Indiana.  Rainfall from this
past Wednesday night through Thursday amounted to 1.5 to 2.5 inches.

Expected moderate to heavy rainfall tonight and Tuesday, possibly
totaling up to 2.10 inches, plus a mixed precipitation system coming
Wednesday night through Thursday night will likely prolong flooding,
and possibly recurrence of flooding on smaller waterways.

Flooding along the main stem rivers is expected to continue into at
least the first week of March.


Motorists should not attempt to drive around barricades or drive
cars through flooded areas.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.
