Wet Start to July 2010! (7/13/2010)

By: NWS Wichita

Early July 2010 Heavy Rain and Flooding

 
July 2010 started off wet across much of Kansas as remnant tropical moisture from hurricane Alex collided with a slow moving front.  The heavy rainfall began on July 4th over Central and South Central Kansas and continued through July 6th as the heavy rain shifted over Southeast Kansas.  The heavy rain sent many rivers and streams into flood causing numerous reports of flooded roads.
