Benton County, Ind. (WLFI)--Benton County is one of two Indiana counties under a travel warning due to flooded roads.
A warning is the highest level of travel advisory issued to keep people off the roads.
Right now the highway department is advising people to avoid driving, especially in the dark.
The flooding has left the department with a shortage of high water signs.
Supervisor David Jessie says that's forcing crews to get creative.
"We just go upstairs and find old parts and take them apart and make brackets so they will stay up on their own, but like I said it's just everywhere and we can't cover them all." Jessie said.
Jessie says they've also gotten reports of cars driving into the water.
He wants to remind drivers that although the roads may look clear, high water can be deceiving to drivers.
