Brown County family rescued from flooded home

Severe weather kept Brown County first-responders busy Sunday night.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says that at approximately 6:30 p.m., Brown County 911 received a call from a home off of Upper Schooner Road. The caller advised that flash flooding had caused water to enter the home. Conservation Officers and firefighters from the Nashville Fire Department rescued the family of four, including one juvenile, from the home.

Floodwater covering sections of State Road 46 West also caused Indiana Conservation Officers and deputies from the Brown County Sheriff’s Department to close the road for a short time to prevent any further water emergencies.

Brown County residents continue to clean up in the aftermath of this past weekend’s storms.
