Flood watches issued

The National Weather Service in northern Indiana has issued flood watches for the following rivers:

  • Eel River at North Manchester, affecting Cass, Kosciusko, Miami, Wabash and Whitley counties.
  • St. Joseph River above Newville, affecting Allen, DeKalb and Defiance counties
  • Tiffin River near Stryker, affecting Defiance, Fulton and Williams counties.
A storm system is expected to move across the area through the next day or so with the potential for heavy rain. The weather service said some areas along those rivers could have minor flooding.

A flood watch means there is potential for flooding, based on current forecasts.
