Heavy rains flood central, southern IndianaFebruary 8, 2019
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Heavy rains have inundated central and southern Indiana, flooding roads, closing schools and heightening the fear of flooding along major rivers in the coming days.
The storms Thursday also prompted several tornado warnings, but none were immediately confirmed.
The National Weather Service reported more than 3 inches (7.6 centimeters) of rain fell near Vincennes in 4½ hours and heavy rains left downtown streets impassable in the Monroe County town of Ellettsville. Part of Indiana 46 was under water.
Several schools in the Bloomington area dismissed early because of flooding.
The weather service warned “significant” flooding is possible on the Wabash River at Lafayette and Gibson County and on the White River from Spencer downstream. At Spencer, the White River is expected to crest at nearly 7 feet (2.1 meters) above flood stage.
