So much rain across the area last night into the early morning hours. I have many many rain reports over an inch! And some less then an inch the more north you head. Everyone up around Benton, Newton, and Jasper, counties really lucked out this time around. Take a look at these rainfall reports below.
Indianapolis 2.94" Inches.
Kokomo, 1.39" Inches.
Fort Wayne, 1.28" Inches.
Frankfort, 1.03" Inches.
Lafayette, 1.00" Inches.
Otterbein, 0.88" Inches.
Attica, 0.84" Inches.
Logansport, 0.75" Inches.
Kentland, 0.62" Inches.
Remington, 0.57" Inches.
Flood warnings are still in effect for parts of the WLFI viewing area. The Wabash is expected to crest again on March 2nd at around 1:am EST. It's expected to crest at 17ft. Flood stage is at 11ft so this would be a good 6ft above flood stage! As I have said before "If your anywhere near the rivers please take note of this and stay weather ready!".
Well, the main severe weather did in fact stay to our south as expected last night however southern parts of the state got pounded with high winds. Damaging winds! I have so many wind reports from these areas it's not even funny. I posted just a few for you all below. Some of these sound like weak tornadoes! But keep in mind strong straight line winds can do just as much damage as a weak tornado! However with how much rain was seen last night some of these could have been rain wrapped weak tornadoes. (Hard to see) They will need to be checked out!
