Flood Warnings Expand Along White River

Last updated on Friday, June 6, 2008

(BEDFORD) - People living along most of the rivers in Southern and Central Indiana are looking at flood conditions continuing.

National Weather Service meteorologists are saying the highest river levels are expected near Columbus, Martinsville, Seymour, and other areas.

Here in Lawrence County flood warnings are here in Bedford from early Sunday afternoon until late Monday night.

Williams residents will be under a flood warning from Sunday afternoon until further notice, and those in Rivervale are under a flood warning from tomorrow afternoon until further notice.

River levels in Rivervale are expected to crest 5 feet above flood stage, causing significant travel problems, and causing those living in river cabins to have to park on higher ground.

Bedford river levels are expected to crest Monday night 3 feet over flood stage, blocking most roads within the river's flood plain, and in Williams, we're looking at 2 feet over flood stage by Tuesday morning, which will block IN-450 and CR400 South.
