Much of the standing water reported earlier in the Region has apparently receded, but the Region could see additional showers and storms today and tonight.
Porter County Highway Department reports high water along numerous roads and in subdivisions today, after a lot of rain fell in a very short amount of time: two inches of rain in 37 minutes. Assistant Highway Supervisor at the Porter County Highway Department David James says that resulted in general flooding around the county. A couple roads were blocked due to storm damage: County Road 125 West south of US 6 in the South Haven area is closed due to trees down as is County Road 750-West at 595-North, just south of Route 130 in the Wheeler area.
