Storm Track is Changing, Flooding is Looking Worse Rather Than Better

Latest model runs are not changing for the better. The storm track like we have seen all winter long is looking much farther north and west so instead of most of our rain ending toward midnight we could have an extending batch of heavy rain for much of the night. We will also have a chance of some strong storms with damaging gusty winds. Please tune in for the latest.

We have done several cut-ins and as of 9:55 p.m. many areas have had between 2 and 3 inches of rain. We may have one more inch of rain on the way before things settle down. Flooding will be significant on the Tippecanoe and Wabash Rivers. The Wabash River will likely have one of its highest crests on record. The Tippecanoe River will have to be monitored carefully and even if it does not reach the levels of 3 weeks ago, residents need to be ready to move if needed in the overnight hours.

Lets keep the river folks in thoughts and prays. This is just horrible, since families are just starting to move back in.
