Saturday's Rain Causes Problems Around Area

(STURGIS) – The rains that moved through the area Saturday caused quite a bit of problems.

The biggest issue was flooding. In Sturgis, the intersection of Chicago and South Centreville Road was flooded so high that vehicles were becoming stuck. People also were taking canoes and boats through the intersection to help people get out of their vehicles and to higher ground.

In Topeka, the storm hit in an area along County Road 600 South.

600 South between 1000 and 1100 West remains closed and wasn’t expected to re-open before this evening according to the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department and NIPSCO.

The National Weather Service sent a damage survey team to the area to assess the damage.

The survey revealed that a wet microburst was the likely cause of the damage. The microburst likely impacted in an open field and spread rapidly northeast near the intersection of County Road 1050 West and 600 South.

Several wooden poles were blown down at the ground level with one being snapped. The impact of this occurring also caused several steel poles to bend at increasing heights above the ground away from the main point of impact.
