TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Thursday night's storms dropped nearly two inches of rain in the Terre Haute area.
Not only was this the biggest rainfall in one night since April, it's also the most rain that's fallen all year.
But was the rain too late to help any crops?
News 10 sat down with John Rosene from Ivy Tech's Agriculture Program to find out more.
He said that the storm's rainfall really won't help the corn crops.
Corn has already missed its time to flower because of the lack of rain and hot weather.
The rain could help soy bean crops a little bit; though they won't be able to create more soybeans, the rain will help the pods that have already grown.
He also said the biggest effect of the rain will be seen in crops like clovers and hay.
Rosene explained we just don't know what to expect going forward.
"But certainly, with two rains one week apart again, we've got a little bit of soil moisture reserve. Now plants are going to start re-growing. All we can do is cross our fingers hope we continue to get those rains," Rosene said.
