Man’s Body Recovered after Flooding in Northwest Kansas

KSAL StaffSeptember 6, 2016

The search has ended for the body of a man who disappeared during flooding in north-central Kansas.

Norton County Emergency Management says the body of 58-year-old Bobby Morris was found Monday morning near Lenora, where he lived. The discovery was made about a quarter mile from where his vehicle was found one day earlier near the North Fork of the Solomon River.

Emergency Management says Morris became trapped in his vehicle after it slid off a road. A tree limb went through the windshield, allowing water to rush into the vehicle.

Fast-moving water initially impeded rescue efforts. Parts of north-central Kansas received 5 to 7 inches of rain on Saturday night.
