FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – The rain has finally stopped, and when it cleared a full two inches had fallen in Northeast Indiana.

Many of the counties in the area had flood warnings in place Saturday night as water levels rose close to their peak. Fortunately, in most cases the water did not spill over on to streets and roadways.

However, the same cannot be said south of Fort Wayne around Indianapolis.

In Central Indiana, several counties are reporting flooding on roads and around homes, forcing road closures and evacuations.

Several residents in a mobile home park on Indy’s south side were evacuated late Saturday night.

There have been numerous reports of people getting stranded in standing water while trying to drive through flooded roads. Emergency crews were out several times Saturday to rescue people from their cars or homes.

As a reminder, authorities warn to never drive through flooded roadways. Instead, turn around and seek an alternate route.
