Area roads under water



The East Fork White River overflowed its banks early Friday, triggered by snow melt and recent rainfall.

The river is expected to crest at 15.8 feet at about 7 a.m. Sunday, which is about a foot less than the National Weather Service had earlier predicted.

The river was rising from 12.81 feet at 7 a.m. Flood stage at Seymour is 12 feet.

Jackson County Sheriff's Department water is across county and state roads in the area, including:

8000 block East 700S.

State 258 between Seymour and Cortland.

100N between 600E and 700E.

50N between 950E and U.S. 31.

400W between U.S. 50 and Vallonia.

700S at 325E.

And State Road 235 at Medora.

Sheriff Michael Carothers warned motorists to not drive through flooded roads.
