ANDERSON, Ind. (July 7, 2015) - Heavy rains Tuesday afternoon caused major flooding in Madison County, specifically in Anderson.

Neighborhood streets off Scatterfield Drive were flooded, meaning many neighbors had to find other ways to get to their homes.

“Today, when I got home from work and found it flooded, I couldn’t get to my driveway. I had to park about a half mile from my house," said Don Kuhl.

Tuesday, four to five feet of water flooded the street. The water was so high it submerged mailboxes.

Neighbors say they're used to their streets flooding, but this time was unlike any other.

“This is the worst I’ve ever seen it. It’s four feet deep. It’s going into people’s houses. We can’t get out," said Josh Whelage.

The problem has been addressed to the Anderson and Madison County sanitary boards. Neighbors say they plan to go to a meeting Wednesday morning to see if there's anything that can be done about the flooding.
