Crests will be/are comparable to those that occurred in February and June of 2019. Mixed precipitation yesterday and today has totaled up to about 1.50 inches, which will slow river falls or bring lower secondary crests. Flooding may recur at Seymour on the East Fork White River and Spencer on the White River. The main crest on the Wabash River has backtracked to Hutsonville from Riverton. The river was cresting at Riverton on Friday, but now with the additional precipitation runoff the crest will be delayed until Sunday afternoon. Vincennes will crest at 20.8 feet Monday afternoon.
