Summary: Moderate flooding conditions are currently occurring across central and southern Indiana.
Over the weekend, 3-5" of rain fell across the White River and Wabash River watersheds. Gages along the White River are measuring moderate to major flood stages at this time. Gages along the Wabash River are expected to stay within moderate flood conditions according to the NWS forecasts.
Two crews (3 people total) measured discharge at 5 sites yesterday. There are 5 crews (8 people total) measuring 10 smaller sites today. The same number of crews are expected to measure the bigger rivers later this week when they are forcast to crest.
