Drenching storms pounded the Midwest over the weekend, forcing search crews to rescue stranded drivers and pedestrians during flash flood emergencies. Heavy rain swamped several areas of Kansas City, prompting high-water rescues and a temporary stoppage of the city’s downtown streetcar service. KMBC-TV reported that Friday night’s storms caused Brush Creek, which runs through the south side of the city, to rise 10 feet in an hour. The Kansas City Star reported that the Johnson County Emergency Management office said there were more than 10 water rescues before 11 p.m. due to the flash flooding.
