Severe storms will continue to pound the Midwest with damaging winds and heavy rain through Tuesday morning.

Some areas have received as much as nearly 5 inches of rain since early Monday evening, including parts of Ohio, Illinois and Indiana.

A tornado reportedly touched down in Andrews, Indiana, around 8 p.m. CDT. No damage or injuries have been reported.

The heavy and slow-moving storms will heighten the risk for flooding, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Faith Eherts.

As of 6 a.m. CDT, several highways and many county roads are closed due to flooding in southern Cass County, Indiana, emergency management reports. Two roads washed out and one bridged collapsed near the town of Deacon.

Much of Howard County, Indiana, has street flooding due to the night's severe weather.

Cass County, Indiana, received 3.48 inches of rain over the course of 24 hours, as of 2 a.m. CDT Tuesday.

As of 2:30 a.m. EST Tuesday, a separate set of storms have developed in western Pennsylvania.
