Episode Narrative A cold front brought heavy rains to the area, causing river flooding over much of south central Indiana and central Kentucky. Additional heavy rains later in April kept the Ohio River at Tell City above flood stage through the end of the month.
Event Narrative The South Fork Licking River at Cynthiana crested at 21.98 feet around 1030 AM EST on April 13. Flood stage at Cynthiana is 20 feet. At 20 feet, large sections of the city park are flooded, and the river is at bankfull on the south side of Cynthiana. The crest was just below the moderate flood level of 22 feet, where some homes on the west side of town are evacuated.
