Hoosiers in many areas are bracing for severe flooding this week. The National Weather Service says there is a potential for “catastrophic flash flooding” over the next three days, with rain amounts not seen in decades. Meteorologists say it’s a very serious situation and it’s only going to get worse as rain is in the forecast through Thursday.
The American Red Cross has opened an emergency shelter at the Shoals Senior Center for residents from Lawrence, Martin, and Orange Counties who need shelter because of flooding.
The shelter is located at 409 Courthouse Drive in Shoals.
