KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Thunderstorms caused concerns about flash flooding across Kansas City on Monday.
Kansas City police rushed to block off Broadway at 28th Street in Midtown and at Southwest Boulevard at 28th Street when the water started to rise.
Other areas that normally see flash flooding also experienced similar issues.
Emergency responders said flash flooding happens incredibly quickly normally due to heavy rainfall.
According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, flash flooding can sweep away cars and quickly damage trees and streets.
They urge that if you can’t see the road, don’t drive through the water.
As of Monday afternoon, Kansas City streets closed due to flash flooding have since reopened.
