Levee Breaks, River Still Rising

Last updated on Thursday, June 12, 2008

(UNDATED) - A levee in Daviess County has breached, and most residents around the area of Maysville are self-evacuating.

Residents are being told to go to Washington and well field is completely out of service due to flooding of pump controls.

The East Fork of the White River will rise to within 3 feet of the crest today in Bedford, Williams and Shoals.

The river has begun to fall in areas such as Rivervale, Columbus, and Seymour.
