Heavy rain fell across northern Indiana...northwest Ohio...and southwest Lower Michigan Monday evening through Wednesday morning.




The heaviest rain fell across White...Pulaski...and Fulton counties in Indiana as a line of thunderstorms stalled out over the area Monday evening...producing between 4 and 7 inches of rain. The heaviest rain fell over the same areas that had earlier received heavy snowfall during the New Years event.


The excessive rainfall combined with the recent snow melt created flash flooding...with river flooding still ongoing (as of 9:00 am EST January 11th, 2008). 


Below are rainfall totals from January 7th through January 9th...
