Heavy rains close Indiana roads, lead to Westfield rescue

Indianapolis — Heavy rains have flooded Indiana roads and led to the rescue of a woman from her home.

WTHR-TV reports emergency crews used a boat to rescue the woman from her Westfield home after it was surrounded by flood waters.

The National Weather Service reported 3.37 inches of rainfall fell between midnight and 12:30 p.m. near Carmel, directly south of Westfield.

In Indianapolis, crews closed off portions of major thoroughfares including Allisonville Road and North Keystone Avenue because of high water.

High water also closed parts of several highways including Ind. 43 in Tippecanoe County and Ind. 450 in Martin and Lawrence counties in the southern Indiana.

The weather service says nearly 2 inches of rain fell in several spots in northern Indiana.

It forecast more storms for Indiana later Thursday.
