Southern Indiana Will Get Blast From Hurricane Laura

(UNDATED) – Southern Indiana will get a blast of heavy rain and strong storms from Hurricane Laura tomorrow.

Jason Puma, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis, said as the remnants of Laura move across Kentucky on Friday, heavy rain and higher than average winds could emerge in Southern Indiana.

Puma says the more pressing concern is that a cold front is going to be sweeping in from the northwest at the same time as the hurricane leftovers come up from the south. So much of Central Indiana is going to be caught in between these two systems.

Forecasters are warning residents to be prepared for storm damage and possible flooding.

The National Weather Service is expecting three inches of rain along the state’s southern border.

Laura is one of the strongest hurricanes ever to strike the U.S. pounded the Gulf Coast with wind and rain Thursday as Laura roared ashore in Louisiana near the Texas border, unleashing a fearsome wall of seawater and killing at least two people.
