TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) -- High water is causing dangerous road conditions in Lafayette, West Lafayette and in the county.

In Lafayette, Ferry Street between Seventh and Ninth streets is closed because of high water.

Flooding has also closed an area in the 3200 block of North River Road in West Lafayette. That's near River Bend Hospital.

In the county, North River Road between Catherwood Drive and County Road 500 North is closed. Areas along County Road 200 South, east of Dayton have a large amount of tree and structural damage and debris are scattered in the roadways.
