ANDERSON, Ind. — Storms packing heavy rains have left roads flooded across Indiana.

Indianapolis television stations showed high water complete covering the four-lane divided highway U.S. 31 in Tipton County north of Indianapolis Friday afternoon. The National Weather Service says many locations across Hamilton, Madison and Delaware Counties received 2 to 3 inches of rain.

The weather service says nearly 3 inches of rain also fell in northern Indiana’s Kosciusko County and in adjacent Marshall County, the Emergency Management Agency reported widespread flooding.

Friday’s flooding came a day after heavy rains inundated the Anderson area. The Herald Bulletin reports firefighters in rubber boats rescued two dogs and a kitten.
