As of 12 noon Tuesday, the Allen County Highway Department South Barn reports the following roads are closed due to high water:
- Paulding Rd between Moore Rd and State Line Rd
- South County Line Rd between Winchester Rd. and US 27
- Marion Center Rd between Winchester Rd and US 27
- Parrot Rd between Maplecrest Rd and Hartzel Rd
The Highway Department reminds motorists that if they encounter a flooded roadway, be sure to "Turn Around, Don't Drown." According to the National Weather Service, most flash flooding deaths are vehicle related. Six inches of standing water is enough to cause passenger cars to stall and a foot of water will float many vehicles. Motorists should never drive through flooded roadways, especially if the water is moving rapidly, and never drive around the barriers warning you that the road is flooded.
