The St. Marys River has fallen another foot overnight and stood at 18.2 feet at 7 a.m. today, local weather station officials said. The river crested at 22.3 last Thursday.
The National Weather Service said this morning that there is a slight chance of rain in the Decatur area tonight, then a 100 percent chance of rain and possibly a thunderstorm after 1 a.m.
An emergency was declared by the Adams County commissioners on Monday, but not involving snow or floods or tornadoes.
