INDIANAPOLIS — Heavy rains have flooded Indiana roads and led to the rescue of a woman from her home.

WTHR-TV reports emergency crews used a boat to rescue the woman from her Westfield home after it was surrounded by flood waters.

The National Weather Service reported 3.37 inches of rainfall fell between midnight and 12:30 p.m. near Carmel, directly south of Westfield.

In Indianapolis, crews closed off portions of major thoroughfares including Allisonville Road and North Keystone Avenue because of high water.
