* 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. Significant flooding
continues along streams and rivers. Additional rainfall from early
Saturday morning through Saturday night of one quarter to one half
inch is expected. If locally higher rainfall amounts are received,
some renewed lowland flooding will be possible. Significant
flooding of locations near streams and rivers will likely continue
into early next week.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
South Bend, Elkhart, Mishawaka, Goshen, Michigan City, La Porte,
Niles, Benton Harbor, Plymouth, St. Joseph, Nappanee, Dowagiac,
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.
