(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - The tri-state has taken on nearly two inches of rain since Thursday.
The National Weather Service has the entire Eagle 99.3 listening area under a Flood Advisory Friday as creeks and streams begin to flood.
Water has also been pooling on some highways.
“First, turn around and don’t drown. People need to not drive in high water. You don’t know how deep it is and what condition the road is in. It could be washed out or have holes in it,” Dearborn County Emergency Management Agency Director Bill Black says.
Black also noted that Dearborn County Highway workers have been placing signs on low-lying roads which often flood during heavy rain. The county no longer closes gates or places barricades on those roads.
The Great Miami River at Miamitown could crest at 16.5 feet, about a half foot over flood stage, late Friday.
In Brookville, the Whitewater River will crest at 9.8 feet Friday morning. Flood stage is at 20 feet.
The weather service says the area could receive less than a half inch of snow Friday. Small amounts of snow could continue to fall overnight Saturday and Sunday.
