Original Post:

After a weekend of flooding in central and southern Indiana, many Hoosiers are dealing with the aftermath of the severe rainfall, which led to flash flood watches and warnings in many parts of the state.

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis is reporting that Vincennes received the most rainfall, with between six and seven inches accumulating starting Friday. Bloomington received between five and six inches and much of Brown County is dealing with up to four inches of water.
