Flood warnings continue for area rivers | Weather
Steady rains this past weekend dropped 1 to 3 inches in most areas, slowing several rivers from dropping to below flood stage.
The Little Wabash River near Clay City was at 20 feet as of Monday night. Flood stage is 18 feet, resulting in minor flooding in the area. The river is forecast to drlop to below flood stage by early Friday morning.
At Carmi, the Little Wabash was at 29.9 feet on Monday night with a flood stage of 27 feet. The river is expected to fall below flood stage in Carmi by Sunday afternoon.
Of course, the hitch in the forecast is that more rain is on the way, particularly Friday and into Saturday, so river level forecasts may need to be adjusted.
