President Bush has declared a third of Indiana's counties disaster areas because of record flooding over the weekend.
Bush late Sunday ordered federal aid to supplement state and local funds in the areas struck by severe storms and flooding beginning Friday.
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels sent a letter to Bush requesting that a major disaster be declared immediately.
As much as 11 inches of rain swamped the state Saturday, flooding homes, threatening dams and closing several roads and highways. And more rain is on the way. The National Weather Service says a new storm system could drop from 1 to 3 inches of rain on the state late Monday.
Flooding killed at least one person and another is missing.
