INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Howard County Emergency Management officials are closely watching the Wildcat Creek Wednesday.
Nearly a week after historic flooding in Kokomo , the water had receded but is now rising again after steady rainfall Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
Last Friday, the creek reached 18.6 feet – the second largest flood since 1913.
At 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, Emergency Management Director Larry Smith said the creek was at 8.08 feet - nearly two feet below flood stage. It had risen to 8.8 feet by 11:30 a.m. As of 2 p.m. Wednesday, the creek measured 9.1 feet - 11 inches short of flood stage.
The rising water concerned people nearby who are still in the early stages of cleaning up after last week's flooding.
Despite the rising levels, Smith said he felt pretty sure it would not flood again.
Police in Tipton County said rural roads had to be closed again Wednesday morning in four locations because of the rain.
