(UNDATED) - Sunday night's thunderstorms may have made people shutter, the National Weather Service says it will have little impact on flooded areas in the state.

Meteorologist Dave Tucek says central and South Central Indiana received anywhere from a quarter to a have inch of rain in the system that came through Sunday evening. North Central Indiana, specifically around Rensselar and Lafayette received about 1 to 2 inches of rain.

Tucek says the higher rain amounts in to the north did swell the Wabash and Eel rivers, however it will take about 3-4 days for the water to move downstream to the southern parts of the state. By then, he says the rivers will have receded in those areas, having very little impact.

Sunday night's storm did move quickly, bring strong winds with the rain. Duke Energy reported over 9,000 customers without power in Tippecanoe County at the high of the storm.
