VINCENNES - A rising Ohio River has closed portions of Indiana 66 in Perry County. As of Friday afternoon the highway was closed: • from Indiana 62 at Sulphur to State Road 70 at Derby. • from Indiana 70 at Derby to State Road 166 at Rocky Point. • from Indiana 166 at Rocky Point to Indiana 237 in Cannelton. When encountering a flooded roadway, INDOT urges drivers to turn around and not drive through standing water.  

According to the National Weather Service, most flooding deaths occur in automobiles. Six inches of standing water is enough to cause passenger cars to stall and a foot of water will float many vehicles.
