In Indiana Sunday, rescuers in boats are still plucking people from rising waters, as parts of the state brace for more flooding. At least one person has drowned and another is missing.

The rising White River has forced officials to order a mandatory evacuation of more than 100 homes this morning. Hundreds of patients and workers have been evacuated from a southern Indiana hospital, and 150 residents were taken out of their flooded nursing home southwest of Indianapolis.

Flooding has also forced hundreds of people staying at a Columbus-area high school to move to yet another shelter at another high school.

In Chicago's southern suburbs, residents are cleaning up from storms and tornadoes, which tore the roofs from homes, knocked down power lines and overturned semi-trailers. Teams from the National Weather Service are surveying damage today and tens of thousands remain without power.

Forecasters are warning that more strong storms could hit northern Illinois Sunday afternoon.
