INDIANAPOLIS – The National Weather Service is changing how it issues different flood headlines. The NWS office here in Indianapolis switched over earlier this week.
One big change is the consolidation of the different flood watches, warnings, advisories, etc.
Nine flood products have been condensed down into four: Flood Watch, Flash Flood Watch, Flood Watch, and a Flood Advisory.
The purpose of the consolidation is to make it easier for the public to understand the threat with as little confusion as possible. The language in the product itself is also changing to be more impacted-based, or how this will impact those in the watch/warning/advisory.
The National Weather Service plans on completely removing the “advisory” terminology, but as Crystal Pettet, the service hydrologist at the National Weather Service Office in Indianapolis explained, that will not happen overnight.
The entire document on the changes to the products can be found here.

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Art Center has been hosting Veterans Art Day since 2012.
It’s a day in which local veterans gather for a free day of fun art classes; a chance to reminisce and create something beautiful and quite possibly do something they have never done before.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans quit their jobs at a record pace for the second straight month in September, in many cases for more money elsewhere as companies bump up pay to fill job openings that are close to an all-time high.
The Labor Department said Friday that 4.4 million people quit their jobs in September, or about 3% of the nation’s workforce. That’s up from 4.3 million in August and far above the pre-pandemic level of 3.6 million. There were 10.4 million job openings, down from 10.6 million in August, which was revised higher.
