INDIANAPOLIS - Several southern-Indiana counties were put under flash flood warnings early Tuesday as an extensive storm system shifted across the state.
StormTeam 6's Todd Klaassen said there's not much risk of tornadoes with the thunderstorms, but we'll see high waters and flooding from heavy rain.
More flood warnings are possible. The heaviest of the rain will fall over the course of the morning before we taper off to just scattered T-storms in the afternoon and evening.
The storms are part of a larger system that spanned several states Tuesday morning. At 4 a.m., it stretched from Kansas through Missouri east to Illinois and finally to Indiana.
Some areas have seen nearly 4" of rain this morning. Slow down on the roads. Lots of accidents reported as well. pic.twitter.com/0luQMqpklg— Todd Klaassen (@ToddKlaassen) September 2, 2014
Storms with frequent lightning began moving into portions of western Indiana around midnight, and into the Indianapolis area around 2 a.m. You can watch our attached video to hear from StormTeam 6's Kevin Gregory in his 3 a.m. check-in.

The threat of high winds, hail and tornadoes is very low, but risk of flooding is high, especially in southern Indiana.
Not everyone will get a strong or severe storm, and not all locations in central Indiana will get rain.
