The St. Marys River is slowly receding since cresting Tuesday and flooding some roads. A Fort Wayne street department worker said they are keeping a close eye on the water levels and, if the water recedes off Tillman Road on Wednesday, they would be able to get the road salted and reopened. Otherwise, he said it could be Thursday morning before lower Tillman is reopened. Heavy rainfall caused minor flooding.
The National Weather Service extended a flood warning for St. Marys at the Muldoon Bridge in southern Allen County near Poe until Friday afternoon. At 10 a.m. Wednesday, the river level was at 16.4 feet, more than 2 feet above flood stage, and falling.
Drivers are warned not to go through flooded areas and parents should keep children away from floodwater.
