The ice jam raised the level of the river by 8 feet west of Logansport and forced some residents to evacuate Wednesday because of flooding concerns. The number of evacuations wasn’t reported.
Cass County Emergency Management Director Alvin Beckman said the river has returned to its normal flow as the ice heads downriver toward Carroll and Tippecanoe counties.
