NORTH WEBSTER – The rain hadn’t even started and already the National Weather Service at North Webster has issued flood warnings for a long list of rivers in its coverage area.
They include the North Branch of the Elkhart River as Cosperville in Noble County...the Elkhart River at Goshen...Saint Joseph River at Three Rivers, Elkhart and South Bend...and the Saint Joseph River at Newville in DeKalb County and in Fort Wayne.
Rises on area rivers are expected to occur as a result of forecast rainfall. Timing and crest heights are still subject to change over the coming days.
Confidence remains high that we could see 3 to 5 inches of rain starting Friday, with locally highers amounts possible.
Never drive vehicles through flooded areas. The water may be too deep to allow safe passage. Never allow children to play in or near flood waters. Stay tuned to Thunder Country for further statements and updated forecasts.
