206 PM CDT Fri Jul 29 2016

The National Weather Service in northern Indiana has issued a

* Flood Warning for urban areas and small streams in...
northwestern La Porte County in Indiana...

* until 500 PM CDT

* at 158 PM CDT... trained weather spotters reported minor flooding
across portions of northwestern La Porte County as thunderstorms
continue to redevelop along and either side of a line from
Otis to northwest of La Porte to near Springville where
over 2 inches of rain has locally fallen. Rainfall rates of 1 to 2
inches per hour will accompany these storms as they move very
little through 4 PM CDT.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Michigan City... La Porte... Westville... Trail Creek... Springville...
Waterford and Otis.

Drivers on portions of the Indiana toll Road between mile markers 45
and 54 will likely encounter ponding of water in low areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause ponding of water in
urban areas... highways... streets and underpasses as well as other
poor drainage areas and low lying spots. Do not attempt to travel
across flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few
inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... as well as farm and country roads. Do not
attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.

Special Statement

Statement as of 1:01 PM CDT on July 29, 2016

Expires 10:15 PM EDT on July 29, 2016


... Funnel clouds possible this afternoon...

Atmospheric conditions are favorable for the development of funnel
clouds... associated with rain showers and thunderstorms across the
area. These funnel clouds normally protrude a few hundred feet
downward from the parent cloud... rotate or spin like a top... and
last a few minutes before dissipating.

These funnel clouds rarely touch the ground and typically do not
pose any sort of hazard. The atmospheric conditions these funnels
are developing in do not support strong or damaging tornadoes.
However... on extremely rare occasions these funnels can briefly
touch the ground and produce minimal if any damage.

The National Weather Service will continue to closely monitor the
situation.Please forward reports of funnel sightings to the
nearest law enforcement agency for relay to the National Weather
Service.
