Heavy rain combined with warm temperatures to melt snow across Illinois and Indiana on Wednesday and Thursday and bring flooding to much of that area. A foot of snow blanketed much of northern Indiana and Illinois late last week only to be followed by temperatures reaching well into the 60s early this week. The excessive water has been rolling into area rivers that can no longer handle it. In Indiana, roads were still blocked Wednesday by water in the Monticello area. There was no immediate estimate to how many homes were damaged. Some relief is expected over the next few days as dry conditions return to the area.
