MONROE COUNTY — Travel Advisories have been issued in several Indiana counties because of flooding on major roadways.

A wall of rain with isolated thunderstorms - sometimes severe - has covered the southern half of the state and is causing significant flooding in multiple counties. An additional one or more inches of rain is likely from Indianapolis and south Thursday evening and will likely be combined with very windy conditions. Wind gusts over 30 miles per hour are expected.

Temps will tumble into the 20s by midnight and into the teens by Friday morning meaning all of the rain building up Thursday evening will likely freeze over.

Below is a list of some of those advisories:

  • Brown County
  • Decatur County
  • Henry County
  • Monroe County
  • Montgomery County
  • Morgan County
  • Putnam County

***Note: It is important to know that some counties do not clear travel advisories from the DHS list on a regular basis. You can view the date the advisory or watch was issued on the full list HERE .

The highest level of travel advisory is "Warning." This means that travel may be restricted to only emergency management workers only. During "Warning" refrain from all travel.

During a "Watch" travel advisory, only essential travel - such as to and from work - is recommended. "Advisory" is the lowest level, and is used to caution drivers of possible hazardous situations.
