INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (June 30, 2015) - Residents in the Ravenswood neighborhood are waiting for the water to go down. The Indianapolis neighborhood located along the banks of the White River is known for flooding. The Department of Public Works passed out sandbags in the area on Tuesday.

"And that's the thing we have experienced some flash flooding and some street flooding this season. I mean we've obviously seen a little more rain than we usually do but we're doing the best that we can," said Jennifer Hashem, DPW spokesperson.

Indianapolis has recorded almost three inches of rain in the past week. The amount of rain seen during the month is about double the average for a typical June.

The weather is keeping restoration companies busy with roof repairs and other water related issues.

"Just a lot of leaks and mainly wind damage and with all the rain if you got a leak in your home it's going to show up," said John Naviaux with Seamless Restoration.
