Last updated on Monday, March 24, 2008

(BEDFORD) - Moderate flooding remains throughout the listening area. River levels along the East Fork remain above flood stage.

As of 9:00 yesterday morning, the river was just about 31 feet in the Bedford area, causing lowland flooding especially in East Oolitic.

In Williams, flooding is forecasted through Saturday. Ridge Road reportedly remains the main route in and out of Williams.

In Shoals, flood warnings still continue until further notice. Late Sunday morning, water levels were still almost 10 feet over flood stage.

Flooding problems have decreased in Orange County, though. Roads in and out of French Lick have re-opened. IN-56 and IN-337 have re-opened, as well as IN-37 between Paoli and Orleans.

IN-550 in Martin County, however, still reportedly has problems, as does IN-157 in Greene County.
