Much of northeast Kansas is just now drying out after Monday morning’s soaking.

In Topeka, the Shunga Creek rose a few feet in just a couple of hours… when heavy rains swept through the city.

Cars sent waves crashing along sidewalks as water pooled on asphalt and concrete.

Fire fighters had to cut the electricity to an apartment unit near 12th and Fairlawn when water seeped inside.

With more storms, expected in the next few hours with the potential to get severe – it’s important to have a plan.

The Shawnee County Emergency Management Office says it will keep tabs on damage and risks in the area.

No serious damage from the rain was reported in Topeka.
