BUFFALO, Ind. (AP) - Rain-swollen rivers and streams overflowed their banks in many places across northern Indiana, covering some low-lying roads and causing emergency crews to help some people who were stranded in their homes.

Several Wabash River tributaries were above flood stage Tuesday after heavy rain the day before in northern Indiana.

Chantel Henson of White County’s emergency management office says crews helped about 20 people from homes in the community of Buffalo along the Tippecanoe River about 40 miles north of Lafayette.

A few dozen people also were evacuated from a mobile home park in the community of Zanesville near Fort Wayne after it was flooded from a nearby creek. High water from the St. Marys River flooded some homes in the northeastern Indiana city of Decatur.
