NOBLE COUNTY, Ind. (WFFT)-  Drivers are asked to avoid State Road 5 between 900N to 1100N, 850 N from 175 E  to State Road Nine, and 600 S from 300 E to 400 E.

Water has made its way from the low lying land onto roads causing drivers to slow down and find other routes.

"It's slowed down traffic a little bit just to and from work with drivers just being aware of the roads," says Austin Yoder. "You can't travel them at the typical speed."

"Gotta slow down... winter's not over yet," says David Silliman.

The rain disappointed Kassie Slain, who was looking forward to the warm weather, but not looking forward to the detours.

"I think it's great that it's warmed up and everything, but you can't really get out and enjoy it because of the rain, and it's been like that for the last couple of days. It was completely flooded so I had to turn all the way around and go back out of my way probably about two to three minutes,"she said.

They all say they'd rather go alternate routes than go through flooded streets.

Slain said there aren't many roads left to avoid it.
