  • Flash Flooding in Kansas City Metro Closes Roads, Prompts Water Rescues

Johnson County received the most rain.

Numerous water rescues were reported. A stretch of Interstate 35 southbound near downtown Kansas City was reported to have 2 to 3 feet of water covering the road Monday night.

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for portions of eastern Kansas and northwestern Missouri, including Atchison, Johnson, Leavenworth, Miami and Wyandotte counties in Kansas and Buchanan, Cass, Clay, Jackson, Johnson Platte and Ray counties in Missouri.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood emergency early Tuesday morning, as flood-prone Indian Creek in the southern Kansas City metro rose over 17 feet in just over 5 hours early Tuesday to a new record level, swamping an area that had just witnessed severe flash flooding on July 27.

The Kansas City Police Department and Kansas City Fire Department will be going door-to-door around the area of Indian Creek from 103rd and State Line Road to Wornall Road, along with the area of 99th and Holmes.
