CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – An ice jam that has caused problems along the Wabash River between Carroll and Cass counties is heading down the river. It started to break and move Sunday afternoon.

Carroll County EMA Director Dana Jeffries tells News 18 the more than seven-mile ice jam is moving at a good rate. He said there have been no major issues since the movement began, and the water levels are coming down.

This means it could hit Tippecanoe County soon.
