This probably doesn’t matter much to anyone other than journalists (and the people directly affected, plus their friends and relatives depending on media coverage), but while the news-consuming public is riveted by the drama unfolding in and around Boston, a big chunk of central Indiana is underwater from flooding.

This is the sort of story that would be getting wall-to-wall media coverage on a slow news day. I’m not watching television right now, but I’d be curious to know from any readers with the tube on if the Indiana story is getting attention (other than on the Weather Channel), or is instead being flooded out.
