INDIANAPOLIS — Flood waters from a broken levee have closed a southern Indiana highway.
Gibson County Sheriff's Sgt. Bruce Vanoven says Indiana 64 west of U.S. 41 near Princeton was closed Sunday after the levee broke the night before. The Princeton Daily Clarian says the Indiana Department of Transportation also closed Indiana 64 east of Oakland City because of standing water.
Vanoven says officers responded to 13 water rescues involving motor vehicles.
High standing water Monday morning also covered all lanes of a major Indianapolis thoroughfare, Fall Creek Parkway, south of the Indiana State Fairgrounds, disrupting rush hour traffic.
Three to 7 inches of rain have fallen across central and southern Indiana since Friday.
The National Weather Service has extended flood warnings for 30 counties until 8 p.m. Monday.
