Flooding Closes Roads, Schools in Southern Kansas

KSAL StaffSeptember 9, 2016

Flooding is closing roads and schools in southern Kansas after the area was inundated with rain.

The National Weather Service says the heaviest rainfall was in south-central Kansas, where 6 to 10 inches fell in a deluge that started Thursday night. Parts of southeast Kansas have received 6 to 8 inches of rain.

Several creeks and rivers, including the Ninnescah and Arkansas, have overflowed their banks.

KSNW-TV reports that crews performed a swift-water rescue Friday in Mulvane. Butler County Emergency Management also says high waters have closed a stretch of Kansas 53 that runs through the town.

Significant road flooding also has been reported just south of Rose Hill.

Meanwhile, school officials in the Mulvane, Clearwater, Douglass and Rose Hill districts have called off classes.
