December 23, 2013

The National Weather Service has extended flood warnings for 30 counties across central and southern Indiana until 8 p.m. Monday. Those areas have been hit with 3 to 7 inches of rain since Friday. On Monday, continuously rising water levels prompted early morning voluntary evacuations in parts of Indianapolis, according to the head of the Indianapolis Department of Homeland Security. By 5 a.m., Fall Creek had risen to its third-highest level in recorded history, and swamped a section of Fall Creek Parkway south of the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
