Statement as issued Thursday by Whitley County officials:
Roadways are water covered in many places. Turn around don't drown. Stay away from flooded areas. Rain will continue throughout today and tonight. Rain will be heavy at times with possible thunder and lightening. We have received over 1 inch of rain as of noon today. This is causing many roads and ditches to overflow. Please be careful when traveling especially on county roads. US 30 at the Morsches Park bridge has water flowing over the roadway. Numerous streets in the city have water at the sides. Please slow down.
