Several regional waterways have risen/are about to rise above flood stage. This will lead to high water across roads and onto some agricultural and residential properties. If you don't have to drive anywhere for the rest of Christmas (Friday or Friday night), stay inside and have a safe holiday.
If you must drive somewhere and you see a street or intersection that looks flooded, please turn around and find another route. Do not underestimate the depth of the water. This can be very dangerous.Waters may not recede until sometime this weekend.
Here are the morning stages for waterways experiencing the worst problems.
