ELKHART COUNTY — The Elkhart River has not reached flood stage yet, but people all too familiar with flooding are watching and waiting.
When Robin Curran purchased her Elkhart County home one year ago, she looked forward to the good times with her daughter, Sierra. Now she's preparing for the bad.
"We are a very high-risk area, so the pros outweigh the cons," Curran said.
Curran has heard the stories about the rising waters in the Decamp Gardens development from neighbors. In fact, she says there's a reminder from that flood inside her home.
"You can still see the mark in our basement," said Curran.
As raindrops fall, Robin is waiting to see how much rain is on the way and how much the ground will absorb.
