Flooding & Severe Weather Engulf Kansas – Pictures & Video

4 Jun 2015, 2:07 pm

The Kansas City International Airport saw record setting rainfall on Wednesday. The 2.25″ total smashed the old record set back in 2005. North of town, some locations recorded as much as four to six inches. Additional rainfall into Thursday morning left the ground saturated. More storms are likely through Thursday night, as the Kansas City metro area remains under an enhanced risk of severe weather. Isolated rainfall totals could be as high as three inches. With lakes and streams running high, the flooding threat remains high. It would only take one inch of rain to start covering roads and highways.
