We're still on dry ground here west of Indy, but we don't need anymore of this weather. Most of those storms that hit down your way exploded right over our head last night. Pretty much rained and stormed for 24 hours here.

I'm sure your generous offer will be a welcome relief to someone at the end of their ability to cope..

A brief tornado or two around here but no damage that I've heard of. I was at work and one touched down a couple miles away. I had no clue until I checked the tornado warning updates on weather.com. Guess I got lucky.

yeah i was at my grandparents house there north of seymour, due south of atterbury on the jackson/bartholomew cty lines at the time, man it looked really really nasty green toward the north, i know lots of damage happened on post, lots of humvees flipped, buildings leveled, i work ther tonight, ill let you guys know just how bad it is. as for the offer, heck, least i can do is help out if help is needed, one reason i joined the national guard. im bored anyway, too wet in the fields to do much.

Came to Indianapolis/Plainfield for DHRA. Saw the damage on TV from the night prior...pretty bad.
Indy is a great town...lots downtown. Enjoyed my drive from the Detroit area through the countryside of NE Indiana and NW Ohio. 69 is the quick way, but good to take the slower route for a change.
We had a tornado watch tonight, but we don't get as many actual tornadoes as you do in Indiana.

I agree with Dukeboy if anyone needs help around the Terre haute or Martinsville Area Let me know I will be there in the morning. (at work till 6am and there are only a hand full of us here because of the storms so cant get off early) Let me know have chainsaw's Ect... I talked to my parents they live in Waverly just north of martinsville and they said the state had to close 37 down due to high water. in the whole time I have lived there (25yrs) never seen it flood over 37 that I can remember.
