(UNDATED) - The Indiana Department of Transportation has announced that rising waters have caused the closure of roads in the Vincennes District.
The closures will remain in effect until waters recede.
The following sections of roadway have either been closed or INDOT is advising motorists to use caution around these areas of high water:
Martin & Lawrence County: SR 450, from US 50 Shoals to SR 158 Bedford
When encountering a flooded roadway, INDOT urges drivers to turn around and not drive through standing water.
According to the National Weather Service, most flooding deaths occur in automobiles. Six inches of standing water is enough to cause passenger cars to stall and a foot of water will float many vehicles.
