Recent heavy rains have caused temporary flooding in low-lying areas throughout the county.
According to Clay County Highway Department officials, motorists are urged to use caution while driving in these areas.
Although the water is receding, the following county roads have been closed to traffic:
HARMONY (Van Buren Township): A portion of West Jackson Street near the Harmony Cemetery has been washed out, causing the road to be closed until repairs can be made.
VIGO/CLAY COUNTY LINE (Dick Johnson Township.): Deep water is covering portions of Perth Road (County Road 300 West) between County Roads 1400-1500 North.
BOWLING GREEN AREA (Washington/Cass townships): Culverts are out along portions of Sonnefield Road south of State Road 42.
BOWLING GREEN AREA (Cass Township): A large tree was blown down during last night's storm and is laying across the road in the area of Candlestick Corner. Highway department workers are unable to clear the tree because of potentially active power lines are stuck in the tree. The road will be closed until Parke County REMC workers are able to remove the lines.
Motorists are urged to avoid water-covered roads and report flooded areas to the Clay County Highway Department at 835-2091.
