As heavy rain drenched the state, several major rivers rose beyond riverbanks and flooded the state. Out of 92 counties, 54 were affected by floodwater. Major roads, including Interstate 65, were submerged and closed to traffic. Several neighborhoods in Indianapolis were evacuated when the White River rose several feet above flood level. Over 100 hundred patients from a hospital were removed as a precaution. Three people drowned in Remington and Columbus.
