KOKOMO, Ind. (AP) - Receding floodwaters revealed damage to dozens of homes and buildings in parts of central and northern Indiana hit by deluges of rainfall this week.

Much of the damage happened around Kokomo and in the Franklin area south of Indianapolis from waves of storms that moved across the state Monday and Tuesday.

Officials say 5 inches or more of rain fell in those areas, with some low-lying roads remaining under water Wednesday in Franklin.

Numerous houses in Kokomo had basement walls cave in, with resident Wesley Jeffries telling WISH-TV he’s worried his home might have to be torn down because of the foundation damage.

A Johnson County government office building in downtown Franklin was closed as officials inspected its flooding damage. At least two Franklin apartment complexes were flooded.
