LINDSBORG, Kan. (AP) — Heavy rain inundating parts of Kansas is proving to be a problem for drivers in some areas.
The state highway department says a stretch of the Kansas Turnpike was briefly closed by high water Monday afternoon near the east-central town of Matfield Green.
Storms that dropped several inches of rain throughout the day also prompted at least one water rescue in Greenwood County. Officials say a car stalled in a flooded intersection in the town of Eureka, about 60 miles east of Wichita.
McPherson County was especially drenched, with flash flooding reported in Lindsborg and more than 4 inches of rain in Galva by late afternoon.
The National Weather Service predicted more rain for much of central, eastern and southern Kansas into Tuesday.
