Hoosiers Asked to Prepare for Possible Weekend Flooding
INDIANAPOLIS—As rain and wind from Hurricane Isaac approach Indiana, the
Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) is asking everyone to
join emergency management officials in preparing for potential storms
and localized flooding.
As the prediction stands now, the National Weather Service (NWS) is forecasting that Indiana may receive 2-8 inches of rain by Tuesday. Central Indiana and areas south along the I-70 corridor, including Terre Haute, Indianapolis and Bloomington, are expected to receive the heaviest amounts of rainfall.
