Indiana Inland Flooding

There are more than 270,000 people living in Indiana's flood-prone areas. The state has taken less action overall than most states to prepare for its changing inland flooding risks. It has done almost nothing to plan for future risks or develop strategies to improve its resilience to climate change.
