Heavy rains wash out portion of western Indiana highway


INDIANAPOLIS — Heavy rains washed out a portion of a highway in the west central part of the state, the Indiana Department of Transportation said Thursday.

State Road 32 just west of the Montgomery/Fountain county line will remain closed until repairs can be made, INDOT said on Twitter.

Also, a section of State Road 47 was closed in Montgomery County near the town of Waveland on Thursday morning because of power lines and poles down on the roadway, INDOT said, citing Duke Energy.

The National Weather Service, citing an amateur radio report, said 3.5 inches (9 centimeters) inches of rain fell in one hour in a Monroe County location.
