Tribune staff reports
Heavy rainfall and snow melt are expected to push the East Fork White River to a crest of 16.3 feet Tuesday afternoon, more than 4 feet higher than the flood stage of 12 feet.
The river overflowed its banks Sunday morning at Seymour, and still was rising at 2 p.m. when it hit 12.99 feet.
The rising waters also closed roads throughout the area.
Jackson County Sheriff’s Department said State Road Road 235 between Medora and Vallonia was closed Sunday afternoon because of high water near Medora.
