Wabash County is starting to dry out after last week’s series of rainstorms that caused several road closures due to flooding.
Local rivers in Wabash County are receding, reported Keith Walters, Wabash County Emergency Management executive director, in an email to The Paper of Wabash County.
“Rain and thunderstorms are forecasted as possibilities over the next few days, and are not expected to cause major issues,” Walters wrote. “As always, citizens are asked to be safe and smart in their travel, especially on county roads where there still continues to be some closed roads due to agricultural, creek and river flooding.
“’Turn Around, Don’t Drown.’”
