KNOX COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Pam Schroeder has worked with the Steen Township Volunteer Fire Department for almost two decades.

But Monday was the first time she’s seen damage like this.

“I have not [seen damage like this.] I’ve been on this department 19 years and it’s the first time I’ve ever seen anything this bad.”

According to Knox County EMA, high water remains a problem on multiple roads. Some of the roads affected are State Road 550 from Marchino to Ellis Roads. Overhead Road between Jackson and Langdon Roads is closed due to a road collapse. Pine Bluff Road is also closed for a collapse just north of Hammelman Road.

President of the Knox County commissioners, Kellie Streeter, said the county was working on establishing the next steps once they are able to evaluate all the damage.

“We’ll start working on making sure that the holes are filled in and pipes put in, so this could be a long-term recovery phase, but ultimately we’re still out there right now with chainsaws and high water signs,” she said.

Schroeder said her department went on eight runs Sunday night into Monday morning, including three water rescues.

“The third one was out on 550. We stayed on the Wheatland side, Washington Township came from the Bruceville side on a boat,” she said. “Those people happened to be on top of their vehicle so they used the boat to bring them back to dry surface.”

Multiple reports of downed trees causing traffic disruptions, as well as more locations of high water, have been reported.

With more rain forecast for the rest of the week, Schroeder and Streeter said anytime someone encounters a flooded roadway, it is best to turn around.
