INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Heaving rains have caused flooding in central Indiana, prompting travel advisories in parts of the state and closing some roadways.

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis issued flood warnings for waterways including the White River and the Big Blue River. Flash flood warnings were in effect Friday in the Indianapolis area and high water was reported on at least a dozen roads in Hamilton County.

Travel advisories posted by some Indiana counties meant that routine travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of hazardous situations.

Emergency managers in Madison and Hamilton counties made sandbags available. Flooding in the Indianapolis area was expected to peak over the weekend.

Gusting winds on Thursday night were blamed for power outages in the Evansville area.
