Heavy Rain Causes Area Flooding

KSAL StaffJune 9, 2014

Heavy rain that began falling in Kansas Monday morning prompted flood warnings for multiple areas by early in the evening.

The National Weather Service issued flood warning for multiple counties across central Kansas including Lincoln, Ellswoth, Barton, Rice, McPherson, and Saline Counties. Forecasters say that between 1 and 3 inches of rain had already fallen around on the area, with more expected.

Some of the heaviest rain was reported in Barton County. In the Ellinwood area over 5 inches of rain was reported.

In McPherson County, several roads were barricaded due to high water. There were several areas in the City of McPherson where water was getting close to houses. Street flooding was also reported in Lindsborg. Canton law enforcement reported several streets under two feet of water. In the Roxbury area there were reports of roads washed out.

Rain was expected to fall over much of the area through the overnight hours.
