NOBLE COUNTY, Ind. (WFFT) - The Indiana Department of Natural Resources issued a "no motor boat" order on the West Lakes.

The Noble County lake chain is begining to flood many people's yards.

It was this time last year when flood waters destroyed many homes.

Since then, residents have cleared hundreds of log jams in the river downstream to help ease the effects of flooding.

The West Lakes Chain consists of Waldron, Steinbarger, Tamarack and Jones Lakes.
