Emergency Management Officials encourage homeowners to prepare for flooding


Although this warmer weather and sunshine is certainly welcome, there could be too much of a good thing.

Flood warnings are now being issued in parts of Michiana.
Across Michiana emergency management officials are hoping for a slow thaw.

If it warms up too fast, all of the snow will melt, running off into the river.

It's estimated the ground is frozen solid three to four feet deep and naturally won't absorb the snow or possible rain but it all has to go somewhere.

There are sand bagging locations set up in all of the countries across Michiana to help homeowners out.
