Indianapolis Flooding 2010 Photos?

The Indianapolis flooding is causing big problems.
Two days of rain have raised water levels on lakes and streams in and around Plainfield, Indiana.
A wave of severe storms crashed through the Midwest Tuesday, forcing residents in central Indiana to flee their homes because of rising floodwaters and frantically ease the pressure on an earthen dam before a new band of storms came rumbling through.

Some neighborhoods are under water. They were showing photos of the flooding in Indianapolis on CNN and some places are completely under water.
If you find more photos of the flooding, please post them.

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis has issued a flood warning for Putnam County as well as several nearby counties including Fountain, Montgomery, Parke, Vermillion and Warren. This warning is in effect until 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

At 9:24 a.m. today, National Weather Service radar indicated that 2 to 4 1/2 inches of rain had fallen overnight in the area, which will cause major flooding in creeks and streams.

Rescue crews were extremely busy helping bring people to safety in at least 12 water rescues. 24-Hour News 8's Keith McCutchen was at the scene when crews helped save a man who drove into high water near Southport Road and New Church Boulevard. Keith reports the man was able to climb onto the roof of his car where he waited to be rescued.

Another rescue took place near the 2000 block of Ridgeport Road. McCutchen said crews helped rescue a disabled man that was trapped in his RV after high water swept in the area.

In central Illinois, heavy rains created flash floods while witnesses reported tornadoes near the Indiana border.

Residents near Avon west of Indianapolis used an earth mover to poke a hole in an earthen dam in hopes of lowering the water level in Indian Head Lake enough that the dam wouldn't be overwhelmed by more rain and swamp bridges and homes downstream. A huge crater had developed in the side of the dam that morning and muddy brown water lapped the top, prompting the temporary evacuation of 32 homes and 16 homes in a nearby mobile home park.
