Keeping an eye on flooding concerns


Well to compliment our beautiful weather, we’ve had a chain of days that just made you feel like the rain was never going to stop. Now, that rain has led to river stages becoming alarming for sections of the Wabash Valley. We’re blessed with the beautiful surroundings of the Wabash River to the White River but they can lead to troublesome conditions when they reach a high level, and that is something Storm Team 10 wants to keep you updated on.

With rainfall on and off over the last week river stages have risen. Areas of the Wabash River have reached minor flooding stages from Montezuma southward to Vincennes. Right here in Terre Haute the river stages look to crest tonight before falling by Friday.The main area of concern though is the white river which has reached moderate flooding levels. Daviess county Emergency Management Agency says they’ve closed roads due to the flooding but the levees can handle it.

EMA officials just want to continue to stress, “Don’t drive through water.” Hydrologists predict this will be an on going concern all the way through until possibly the last week of April. Remember to always turn around and find another route…and once again never drive through water. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
