Roads reopen but flooding risk remainsFebruary 19, 2019
From Local Sources
Just a few county roadway sections remained blocked by high water today, but that could change with the potential for more flooding and winter weather this week.
Going into the weekend, the Dubois County Highway Department had counted high water covering 14 low-lying roadway sections. Today, that number is down to three.
Affected roads are:
• County Road 800W north of County Road 300S.
• Portersville Bridge Road north of the Daviess County bridge.
• County Road 700N east of Portersville Road.
The National Weather Service in Louisville forecasts a brief period of snow and sleet tonight that could bring a slushy 1 to 2 inches of snow to Dubois County. Warmer air moving in will change the snow over to rain just before daybreak Wednesday but a Winter Weather Advisory is in place from 9 p.m. today to 4 a.m. Wednesday.
Wednesday will feature widespread and occasionally heavy rain, with more than 1 inch possible in Dubois County, according to NWS Louisville.
The forecast means additional flooding is possible.
Authorities remind the public to never attempt driving through water on flooded roads. Just a foot of water can sweep away a car and 18-24 inches of water can do the same to a larger vehicle.
