Heavy storms moved through the Tri-State Tuesday, dumping several inches of rain in may areas, flooding local roads and damaging homes.
The storms dropped around 2 to 6 inches of rain throughout the day in the Greater Cincinnati area.
Heavy flooding was been reported in Franklin County, Ind., especially in Laurel, where as much as six inches of rain fell on Tuesday. At least ten people had to be rescued from their homes.
"Rescue went out on (the) road and got a family of five, then we got a mom and child out of a trailer south of town here," said Chief Roger Reams with the Laurel Fire Department.
Franklin County issued a 'Level 2' road emergency Tuesday afternoon, meaning drivers had to stay off the roads unless they were emergency personnel.
Interstate 74 was closed in both directions between Batesville and Greensburg for several hours due to high water.
Batesville also suffered from flooding after the flood waters began rising fast.
"Within five minutes the water went up another five inches so it was rising pretty fast," said Batesville resident Luke Pierson.
