Getting close to flood stage
Water surrounds trees and the area around Community Medical Center along U.S. 127 on the south end of Celina this morning. Water spilling over the West Bank Spillway flooded that area, but was not on the roadway, as of this morning. The National Weather Service issued a flood advisory for all of Mercer County for today, due to an additional 1/4 to 1/2 inch of rain expected today on top of already saturated ground. Local weather forecaster Dennis Howick said normal rainfall for all of January in the Grand Lake area is 2.17 inches. This weekend and overnight rain totaled 2.24 inches alone.
