FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — The rain finally stopped on Sunday morning, allowing for the drying out process to begin.

All-in-all, some hefty amounts of rain fell between Jan. 9 - 12.

A list of 72-hour rain totals ending at 7 a.m. on the 12th can be found here.

The numbers were impressive here in Fort Wayne. Officially, we picked up 2.47" of rainfall in 72 hours.

From what was found in last Jan.'s monthly climate report, we normally see 2.26" of rainfall for any given Jan. 

So, we picked up over a month's worth of rain in just three days.

Many places saw even more rain than Fort Wayne. The problem with so much rain? Flooding.

Area rivers have been on the rise ever since the start of the event and most still have some rising to do until the middle part of the week of Jan. 13.

So, if you live along a flooded waterway, exercise caution.

Fortunately, we'll be mostly dry for the next several days.
