INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (June 27, 2015) -- People living in Delaware County are seeing improvements now after heavy rain flooded many areas overnight.

Muncie Mayor Dennis Tyler says he saw standing water in spots he’s never seen before.  Muncie police say no one was hurt, but some cars got stuck after drivers tried to pass through high water.  Rescue crews were called to help some drivers on Madison Street near the underpass, while another driver got stuck on East Jackson street.  Some drivers say they had a tough time finding a way to get home.

"I work in Indy and we live in the country, so I tried three different directions, trying to get to our house -- and it was flowing, it wasn’t just standing water, it was like rivers going across the road," said Teresa Coy.

Delaware Co. dispatchers say calls for help started to die down around 1 a.m. Saturday morning.  Sandbags are still available for anyone in need at Fire Station #2 in Muncie and at the Delaware County Fairgrounds.
