A flash flood watch remains in effect in our area through tomorrow night with the potential for heavy rain today and tomorrow, according to the National Weather Service. That rain will be falling on already saturated ground, leading to the danger. An additional 2 to 4 inches of rain is expected in some locations tonight and tomorrow morning.

Flood warnings remain in effect for rivers in our area including the Flat Rock, Driftwood, and East Fork White Rivers.

In Columbus this morning the East Fork White River was running about two feet above the minor flood stage. In Seymour, the river is still in the moderate flood stage, about nine inches before it gets back to minor level.
