A driver in Kansas has been rescued from his vehicle that sat in high water, as heavy rains caused major flooding across the state.

According to Butler County Fire Chief James Woydziak, firefighters responded to a call about a water rescue in Rose Hill Tuesday morning. Officials say James Polk managed to climb on top of his vehicle which had stalled on a submerged low water bridge.

Firefighter Chris Hodges said he pulled his rescue truck to the edge of the water, and waded to Polk’s car. Polk was taken to safety and was not hurt.

Wichita also saw heavy rains Tuesday afternoon that led to some motorists being stranded and street closures.
