Flooding Forecast in Central, Southern Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – The National Weather Service has posted flood warnings along southern and central streams and predicts the highest flood crests along the East Fork of the White River since April 2011. 

The weather service said Friday that flooding will develop during Christmas week in much of central and southern Indiana, with significant flooding possible in portions of southern Indiana.  
 
The weather service says 2 to more than 4 inches of rain will fall over central and southern Indiana over the weekend, adding to snowmelt already in streams. The heaviest rainfall is expected south of Interstate 70.  
 
The affected streams also included the Wabash, White, Mississinewa, Muscatatuck, Big Blue, Driftwood and Flatrock rivers and Buck, Clifty, Fall and Sugar creeks. 
 
Marion and Hamilton counties were among those making sandbags available to residents.
