Indian Creek Gets Within 1.8 Feet Of Flood in Overland Park

Heavy rains bought on by severe thunderstorms caused a fast rise on Indian Creek in Overland Park KS Wednesday night.

Six hour rainfall near the creek gage site was more than 3.3-inches as shown on the next image.

As you can see by the next image- the stage actually got within 1.8 feet of "moderate flood" at the gage location at W. 103rd Street and Marty- just west of Metcalf.

Indian Creek was slowly falling as of midnight Thursday morning. but further heavy rains SW of Metro Kansas City will keep me watching this situation for the next few hours.

I will post updates on my Facebook account "Jay Botee" as needed....
