As of 3 p.m. Monday, the Allen County Highway Department South Barn reports these roads closed due to high water:
- South County Line Road between US 27 & Winchester Rd.
- Marion Center Road between US 27 & Winchester 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.
