The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning until 3:30 a.m. Saturday for all or parts of Allen, Huntington, Kosciusko, Wabash and Whitley counties in northeast Indiana. At 9:19 p.m., radar indicated very heavy rain from a thunderstorm over the area, the weather service said in its warning. Radar estimates, along with spotter reports, show a widespread area of 2 to 4 inches of rain during the last few hours along U.S. 30, the warning said. It said some places have received 5 or 6 inches of rain, or more with additional rain that fell earlier today, and additional totals of 1 to 2 inches are possible during the next three to six hours. Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small creeks and streams, highways and underpasses, the weather service said. Also, it said, country roads and farmlands along the banks of creeks, streams and other low-lying areas are subject to flooding.
