Southern Indiana sees up to 4 inches of rain over 2 days

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A storm system that's created headaches for holiday travelers has dropped up to four inches of rain on parts of southern Indiana, causing flooding in some low-lying areas.

National Weather Service meteorologist Mike Ryan says three to four inches of rain fell between Friday night and Saturday evening on the southwestern Indiana cities of Vincennes and Washington and further east in the Bedford and Bloomington areas.

Ryan says 2.3 inches of rain had fallen in Indianapolis, including 1.53 inches on Saturday that set a new daily rainfall record for the city.

He says the heaviest bands of rain were expected to arrive Saturday night before tapering off early Sunday.

Ryan says flooding along creeks and streams will spill into Indiana's rivers Sunday, causing flooding that's expected to linger for days.
