(UNDATED) - Throughout the rest of the state, Indiana is still pulling itself back up from Sunday’s storms.

The Red Cross reports operating 6 feeding sites in crawford County, including in Leavenworth, Taswell, Marengo, Milltown, English and Alton. Those centers will be open from noon until 7:00pm until further notice.

State police are also maintaining patrols in Crawford County during dark hours.

In Brown County, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security reports the Sheriff's Department had to shut down the jail due to lack of running water.

80% of Jennings County remains without power, and now they are running out of gasoline.

In Monroe County, apparently several fire departments lost power.

Finally, IDHS, FEMA, the Army Corps of Engineers and other government and non-governmental agencies are deployed throughout the state helping out.
