Late-night rain storms brought flash floods to Butler, Clinton, Hamilton and Warren counties Thursday, resulting in road closures, crashes and even evacuations.

Flood warnings last for Indiana's Dearborn, Franklin and Ripley counties until 11:30 a.m. Portions of southeastern Butler County and north-central Hamilton County remain under flood warnings until 1 p.m. Friday.

The National Weather Service, projecting up to four inches of rainfall in some areas and a risk of flooding from the runoff, issued flash flood warnings that continued late into the night for much of southeast Indiana and southwest Ohio. 

The NWS reported an evacuation at the Golden Village Retirement Community in Batesville, Indiana, due to floodwaters entering their building; the home reported that shelter was being arranged for Golden Village residents.

The Wilmington-based NWS was urging residents of Hamilton, Ohio, and Middletown, Ohio, to seek higher ground until a flash flood warning expired at 2:45 a.m.
