After two rounds of storms came through Saturday, flooding became an issue. The highest rainfall totals ranged from 1″-3″ including 1.38″ in Fort Wayne. After all that rain, there are two active flood warnings in our area. Only the Eel River at North Manchester is in a Minor flood stage. The Wabash River at Wabash, the north branch of the Elkhart River at Cosperville, and the Pigeon River near Scott are near flood stage but not forecast to rise. All that rain has put us WAY above average for the month of May. We have seen 6.03″ of rain already…
