The latest news on floods
Indiana University officials, police, and students are assessing the damage from flash flooding on Tuesday and Wednesday.
More than a dozen are dead after buckets of rain doused the Midwest and rivers crept over their banks, creating flooding in parts of Ohio, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Kentucky. While it was sunny this morning in Ohio, authorities warned that the rain wasn't over yet and many rivers would still crest well above flood stage.
Increases in rainfall threaten to inundate reservoirs—and even fuel forest fires.
