Rain causes flash flooding Thursday morning

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Rain has been falling in the Tri-State since early Wednesday night, causing flooding and a few accidents.

Some of the typical spots like Virginia Street viaduct saw flooding, and a couple of cars were stranded there throughout the morning.

There has also been flooding along Baseline near Highway 41 near one of the entrances to North High School. A School bus had to stop on Baseline near Bender Road because of high water.

The Vanderburgh County Highway Department reported that roads in the northern part of the county like St. Joe Avenue and other sections of Baseline have some flooding issues.

Flash flooding on the interchange of the Lloyd Expressway and Highway 41 caused at least one vehicle to be stranded early Thursday morning.

That car was eventually towed.

We also had numerous reports of flooding in Dubois County, including an accident that sent a car into a ditch and caused a school bus in Jasper to run late.

A stretch of I-64 was shut down in Crawford County near the Perry County line.

The sheriff’s office says I-64 East was closed at mile marker 86 in Crawford County.

Part of the right bound lane washed out due to the rain. That section of the interstate is currently being worked on and was down to one lane.

Crews have already temporarily patched the hole and the road was expected to reopen a short time ago.
