Hoosiers taking caution after heavy rain hits Central Indiana

Some residents may be waking to a big mess in the morning. Heavy rain meant high water and even some flooded yards, especially on the south side.

Greenwood residents said the water rose up to two inches in an hour. With our recent snowmelt in the last couple days, it’s only adding more problems.

“This type of land doesn’t like the water too much because it’s all farmland,” said Kyle Marsh, who drove around puddles upon puddles in Greenwood. “There are no trees to saturate the ground to really digest the water.”

City crews in Fishers are on standby and monitoring water levels in creeks as the town braces for up to 2-3 inches of rain. With more expected to fall in the next 24 hours, it could get more wet and worse.

“The hills and the creeks come together especially on some low-lie bridges,” said Marsh. “Just the typography and farmland makes it worse for flooding.”

Drivers are urged to slow down around areas with high water.
