The Town of Winamac is starting to clean up its park facilities, following recent flooding. Park Manager Dave DeLorenzo told the park board Thursday that the park office got nearly 14 inches of water, and he’s begun pulling out damaged insulation. Park Board President Courtney Poor expressed confidence that the town departments will work together to do what needs to be done.
The National Weather Service says the Tippecanoe River crested at over 15 feet in Winamac last Saturday. That’s the highest it’s been since 2009 and the third-highest crest on record. The Tippecanoe River is predicted to remain above flood stage for at least the next few days.
