HIgh Water Keeps Area Highways Closed

                INDOT reports that the following area highways remain closed by high water: State Road 257 between Washington and Otwell, State Road 358 between Plainville and Edwardsport, State Road 450 between Shoals and Bedford, State Road 43 from State Road 54 to State Road 48, and State Road 147 between Bloomfield and Worthington.  INDOT reminds everyone that six inches of standing water can cause a passenger car to stall and a foot of water will float many vehicles.  If you encounter high water, please turn around and use another route to get to your destination.
                    The National Weather Service says that significant river flooding will continue to impact the lower reaches of the West and East Forks of the White and Wabash Rivers in southern Indiana through the week.  Flood crests on both forks of the White River will be similar to those in December.
The East Fork at Shoals and Petersburg is expected to crest on Wednesday.  The West Fork at Edwardsport is expected to crest near 23 feet sometime this morning.
