WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Heavy storms have led to flash flooding in southern Kansas, including along a roadway where two people were rescued.
The National Weather Service on Sunday issued flood warnings for several areas, including in south-central Kansas where flash flooding was reported along several roadways and fields.
Scattered power outages were also reported in the Wichita area.
KAKE-TV reports that two adults and a child were in a vehicle that was swept off a roadway late Saturday night in east Wichita. Authorities said they found the vehicle partially in a creek, and the people inside couldn’t open the doors as the water started to rush around them.
One of the two adults was able to get out of the vehicle on their own. Firefighters saved the other adult and child.
