Significant River Flooding Returns to Portions of the Wabash River

Significant river flooding returned to portions of the Wabash River in west central Indiana.  Rainfall of 1 to 2 inches fell in a 20 to 30 mile wide area from Champaign, Illinois to Bluffton, Indiana on Saturday evening.  The crest from the last heavy rain had reached Montezuma by late Tuesday morning.  The Wabash River will crest from Terre Haute to New Harmony by June 5.  River flooding will end by June 10.

Little rain fell during the Memorial Day weekend in southern Indiana.  As a result, the river crests were in the lowest reaches of the East Fork White and White Rivers on Tuesday morning.  Lowland flooding will end along the Muscatatuck, East Fork White and White Rivers in southern Indiana by Saturday evening.

More information can be found on our Rainfall and Flooding Outlook page as well as the river forecasts page.  Please note that river forecasts indicated on our Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service page include 2 days of expected rainfall.
