. Lowland river flooding will develop this late this weekend and
continue through the week of January 12.  At this time...significant

Late Friday morning a snow pack of 4 to more than 10 inches covered
much of central and northern Indiana.  The combination of slow to
moderately melting snow and rainfall of one-half to nearly an inch
by Saturday afternoon will cause lowland flooding late in the
weekend.  High water will continue much of next week.

Precautionary/Preparedness Actions...

Homeowners should open storm drains blocked by snow to prevent local
flooding.  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.
