Southern Kansas Flood Victims Evaluate Damage

KSAL StaffAugust 23, 2016

Southern Kansas flooding victims are cleaning up the mess torrential rains left behind.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Mulvane city administrator Kent Hixson says 44 homes and five businesses inside the city limits saw some sort of flooding damage from Friday’s deluge. The National Weather Service says between 6 and 7 inches of rain fell in about two hours.

As of Monday, damage estimates in Mulvane had already reached about $1 million. And they could rise as homeowners, insurance companies and inspectors get a closer look at the losses.

Hixson says the heavy rains “just overwhelmed our drainage systems” and sewer system.

Nadine Sanchez says she “wouldn’t wish this on anybody.” Her losses included letters she exchanged with her husband while he was away on military duty in Germany.
