The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces rising waters have caused the closure of Indiana 101 in Adams County. The closure affects Indiana 101 at the St. Mary's River, north of Pleasant Mills. The closure will remain in effect until waters recede.
When encountering a flooded roadway, INDOT urges drivers to turn around and not drive through standing water. According to the National Weather Service, most flooding deaths occur in automobiles. Six inches of standing water is enough to cause passenger cars to stall and a foot of water will float many vehicles.
