* trained spotters and emergency management continued to report some
flooding and closed roads across the Flood Warning area. Areal
flooding has improved in some locations, but several roads remain
closed due to standing water across the area. Flood waters should
continue to recede over the next 24 hours, but significant
flooding will continue especially along streams and rivers.
Additional light rainfall is expected late tonight into Friday
morning, with another chance of rain Friday night through Saturday
night.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
South Bend, Elkhart, Mishawaka, Goshen, Michigan City, La Porte,

Westville, Bremen, Buchanan, Knox, Georgetown, Winamac, Trail Creek
and Granger.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Stay away or be swept away. River banks and culverts can become
unstable and unsafe.
