INDIANAPOLIS — Severe thunderstorms have raked central and southern Indiana, dumping large hail and heavy downpours of rain that caused localized flooding.

The National Weather Service estimated hail 1.75 inches in diameter fell in the Indianapolis southern suburb of Greenwood during a Wednesday afternoon round of storms. It measured 1-inch hail in Indianapolis.

Dubois County authorities closed a road because of high water, and the Hamilton County Emergency Management Agency north of Indianapolis made sandbags available to local residents.

Earlier Wednesday, storms pelted central Indiana with hail.

The weather service says severe weather is possible across Indiana through Thursday, with the main threat being large damaging hail. Those storms will also carry the risk of damaging winds and isolated tornadoes.
