Indy Gets Needed Rain, Thousands Lose Power
Thunderstorms passed through Central Indiana, bringing the most rain seen in the region in months.
RTV6 Chief Meteorologist Kevin Gregory says Indianapolis received an inch and a quarter of rain Sunday morning. He says that's the most rainfall in one day since early May and more rain than Indianapolis received in June and July combined. Gregory says Indianapolis is still in a rain deficit of about ten inches.
Gregory says any chances of rain for the rest of Sunday are very isolated. Sunday morning's storms are expected to be the last big chance of rain for several days.
There have been reports of trees down, especially in the Broad Ripple area. Tens of thousands of customers were left without power following the storms. IPL reported as many as 27,000 customers in the dark. Duke Energy had over 13,000 customers without power as well.
