Two rounds of heavy rain impacted the Flint Hills into southeast Kansas on Friday May 15th. The first round moved through between midnight and 2 am with another round closer to sunrise and lasting into mid morning. Three to five inches of rainfall was reported with much of that falling in a fairly short amount of time. A few water rescues were reported along with numerous road closures. Heavy rain also sent many rivers across the Flint Hills and southeast Kansas into flood.
