Indian Creek Hits Flood Stage

MADISON, Ala.(WHNT)-One of Madison County’s busiest waterways officially hit flood stage Tuesday night, swamping a nearby park and creeping closer to area homes.


The rising waters of Indian Creek went past the 7.5 foot flood line shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday, and evidence of its impact could be seen across Madison County.


The popular Indian Creek greenway on the Huntsville-Madison city line was swamped with water that overflowed its banks, with many parts of the two mile trail impassable.


The greenway parking lot by Olde Madison Pike was also partially submerged. The ramifications were a little more serious further upstream, as anxious homeowners in Harvest and Monrovia kept a wary eye on Indian Creek, which runs beside several neighborhoods.


“It definitely puts your perspective in focus as to what’s really in control, and it’s not us,” said homeowner David McEwan, whose Monrovia house borders Indian Creek. “It does make you a little concerned when you see it come up like that.”


As of late Tuesday, no roads had been impacted by Indian Creek. Blake Bottom and other nearby thoroughfares are some of the roadways that have been affected in the past.
