A sudden downpour caused street flooding and forced some residents out of their apartments in Evansville.

The National Weather Service says three-tenths of an inch of rain had fallen in the city as of 4 p.m. Thursday. More rain is in the forecast for the weekend.

Ground floor apartments at the Lucas Place apartments were flooded with more than one inch of water during the afternoon downpour. Lucas Place is a transitional housing program for people who would otherwise be homeless. Workers used vacuums to dry out the apartments and hallways.

The rain also flooded several intersections and portions of the Lloyd Expressway in downtown Evansville.
