Heavy Rain Brings Minor Flooding

KSAL StaffMay 23, 2014

Locally heavy rainfall was causing some minor flooding in parts of Kansas, but a Wichita forecaster says most of it was confined to city streets where drainage isn’t very good.

National Weather Service meteorologist Scott Smith says water had covered a road in western Butler County on Friday, but most other roads were still passable mid-afternoon.

He says the potential for further heavy rain could increase the flooding risks, but nothing unusual for late spring.

Smith says an elderly couple who drove into water covering a road in Hutchinson earlier Friday got stuck and had to be rescued when their car died. Otherwise, he says he hasn’t heard of others having problems with floodwaters.

The weather service says rain is expected off and on in parts of Kansas through Tuesday.
