KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Price Chopper at Brookside had to clean up flood water before it could open to customers Monday morning. They posted a sign that said the store would be ready at 9 a.m.

The Price Chopper sits in a low area and with the heavy downpour, water found its way inside and posed a hazard to customers.

As FOX 4's Katie Ferrell reported on flooding in the KC area Monday morning, she was live at Price Chopper (above) and at 61st and Brookside Blvd, where the road apparently buckled, leaving chunks of pavement, and closing one city block.

She also reported that it appears a bench bolted into the ground there was shoved out of the pavement.

Watch her report from that location below. At about 7:45 a.m., KCP&L was working to restore power to about 6,700 customers following the early morning storm.
