Severe storms and flooding - June 8th-9th (6/12/2010)

By: NWS Wichita

June 8th and 9th - Severe storms and Flooding

Storms first developed late Tuesday afternoon (June 8th) along a cold front that was pushing steadily south. Additional storms formed north of the cold front  as the overnight hours progressed providing several rounds of storms for locations generally along and southeast of the Kansas turnpike.  Many of these storms quickly became severe with wet microburst winds the main severe threat. However with an extremely moist air mass in place all of the storms produced very high rainfall rates that caused widespread flooding across portions of South Central and especially Southeast Kansas. 

Below is a rainfall map from 7am on June 8th to 7am on June 9th
