National Weather Service Extends Tippecanoe River Flood Warning


Tippecanoe River flooding remains a possibility through the weekend, according to the National Weather Service. The flood warning for the river at Ora has been extended until late Saturday night. Moderate flooding is occurring along the river now as a result of recent, heavy rainfall. The river was holding steady at 13.1 feet last night at 9. Flood stage is 12 feet. The river is expected to fall below that level early Saturday. Additional rain is in the forecast, and that could add to the problem. Motorists are reminded to “turn around, don’t drown.” If water is over the roadway, don’t try to drive through it, as the road may be washed out underneath.
