The National Weather Service has issued a statement regarding potential river flooding by Thursday, especially along the Wabash River in Lafayette.
River levels will increase by 19 feet by Wednesday night or Thursday morning, which puts them at "moderate" flooding levels. According to the NWS, moderate flooding indicates inundation of secondary roads. In cases of moderate flooding, the NWS recomends residents to transfer to a higher elevation to save property, and that some evacuations may be required. The Wabash River will enter minor flooding levels by Tuesday afternoon.
The heaviest rain will fall in the northern part of the Fox59 vieweing area with two inches of rain possible. With soil already saturated, river levels will easily increase.
