(UNDATED) - The threat of heavy rain makes flooding a real threat in south central Indiana. Floods occur as streams and rivers overflow their banks.

This can occur during heavy rainfall.

Flash floods can come rapidly and unexpectedly.

Flash flooding can occur after a few minutes of heavy rain fall or after hours of significant precipitation.

Hoosiers who live in flood prone areas should always be conscious of the threat of flash floods when receiving significant rainfall.

The Indiana State Police offer a few flood safety tips.

Do not drive around barricades at water crossings, and be especially vigilant at night.

Many drowning deaths occur at night when it is difficult to see water crossings.
