Of your charity, please pray for the victims of the tornadoes and floods in Indiana.
There has been practically nonstop severe weather and rain since the end of May here in Central and Southern Indiana. It started with tornadoes at the end of May of which my parents got stuck in the tail end of one whilst driving. They and their car survived intact.
Now there is major flooding as many areas have seen 2 to 12 inches of rain. The towns of Franklin, Martinsville and Edinburgh have been hit exceptionally hard. Also of concern... the flood waters are swelling the rivers and surrounding communities to the south as the rivers flow in to the Ohio River.
The weather forcast shows the possibility of more storms through out the week.
The Indiana Army and Air National Guard, as well as the Coast Guard, Marine Corp and Civil Air Patrol have been assisting in local resuce efforts. The Marine Corp is conducting urban warfare exercises in Indianapolis during this time, thus their presence. Many counties have been declared disaster areas and stes of emergency are in effect. Parts of I-70 west are closed as well.
