The historic flooding of Sugar Creek, seen at the Lafayette Avenue road bridge, over Sugar Creek, in Crawfordsville, Indiana, April 19th, 2013. The road was closed to vehicular traffic, because the water level was almost up to the top of the arches, under the bridge. The Elston Softball park was closed, because it was under water, and the Creekside Lodge restaurant and lodge, was surrounded by water.

In an article in the local newspaper, the Journal Review, of Monday April 22nd, it quotes the National Weather service;

“According to the National Weather service, Sugar Creek crested Friday afternoon [April 19th] at 15.31 feet, making it the second worst flooding event since March 27, 1913, when the creek crested at 17.30 feet. Flood stage is considered at 8.0 feet.”

These pictures were taken on the Friday afternoon, around the time the creek crested.
