Most businesses in Broad Ripple quickly recovered from floodwaters that hit the area Tuesday, but restaurant Petite Chou remains closed.

"I think we're looking at this as a 100-percent gut job," Hoover said. “The water came in at such a fast pace, and there was so much water.” The Indianapolis Department of Public Works said two flood gates were wrongly closed in the 6500 block of Westfield Boulevard, which led to flooding after heavy rains.
