April 19, 2013

Boone County commissioners declared a state of emergency Friday due to rising floodwaters. Shelters were set up at Harney Elementary in Lebanon and Zionsville Christian Church for people who’ve been flooded out of their homes. Zionsville police said 15 houses had been evacuated. Eagle Creek is near historic levels, cresting at about 16 feet. Emergency officials are telling people to stay inside unless absolutely necessary.
