DRESSER, Ind. (WTHI) - One neighborhood in Vigo County has been working non-stop to deal with flooding issues.
The small community of Dresser was hit hard by flooding. It happened late Sunday night after water from the Wabash River flowed over the nearby artificial levee.
As a result, much of the area was covered in water, including houses and a church. The community spent most of the day Monday sandbagging, trying to halt the water.
Some of those workers had been doing it since the early hours of the morning. Residents said the water levels are heart-breaking.
"It's never been this high. This is bad. We've got sub-pumps in the basement, pumping the basement out," homeowner Kimberly Wilson said.
Monday afternoon, inmates from the federal penitentiary in Terre Haute helped with sandbagging efforts.
Firefighters were called to blaze at a two story house at around 6:30 Thursday morning.
