    Heavy rains cause street flooding, to continue
    The Kansas City Star
    Runoff from Sunday’s heavy rains caused high water to collect at numerous low-lying intersections across the metropolitan area and more flooding is expected.

    The National Weather Service have forecasted rain to continue through Tuesday, and officials have said the heavy rain could not only cause flash flooding with each rainfall, but the potential for more widespread flooding in the area as water levels rise in local streams and rivers.

    “There’s a lot more rain coming,” said Mark O’Malley, forecaster with the National Weather Service. “We’re going to have another round tonight, another round Monday and another round Tuesday.”

    Police and fire agencies from several jurisdictions were called out to assist motorists whose vehicles stalled after they drove into high water. Kansas City fire department personnel assisted drivers whose vehicles had stalled in high water at 31st Street and Roanoke Road, 63rd Street and Paseo Boulevard, and near Emmanuel Cleaver at Elmwood Avenue. Johnson County fire personnel also were called to 171st Street and Mission Road to aid a motorist.

    Lightning associated with this morning’s storms struck at least two buildings.

    One strike started a fire on the roof of a duplex at 108th Street and Haskins Drive in Lenexa about 8:30 a.m. Sunday. Two families inside were not injured but they were displaced by the fire, according to the Lenexa Fire Department.

    Lightning also hit the Scottish Rite Temple at 1330 E. Linwood Blvd. around noon. Some bricks were knocked off the building, but no fire started.

    The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for the entire area about 1 p.m., effective through Tuesday morning.

    The forecast for the rest of today calls for periods of showers and thunderstorms with possibly heavy rain through tonight. Beginning Monday morning there is a 50 percent chance of thunderstorm through Tuesday night.

        We have been in and out of flood warnings since last night.

        Rain predicted all dang week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy cow!

                              Last May we had the same thing.

                              Actually, the Hilton Hotel that I work at has this pipe that drains water from the roof to the ground. And the pipe at one point goes over the lobby ceiling.

                              We got almost an inch of rain in 15 minutes, and the pipe burst and their was a waterfall coming out of a whole in the ceiling all over the lobby. Their was a foot of water in the lobby .
