Flooding on Kansas Turnpike
The Kansas Turnpike (I-35) between Emporia and Matfield Green Service Area, at Milepost 118, has been closed due to flooding with fast-moving water. There is also a report of an accident in the same location.
The red area (circled) has received about 5 inches of rain between about 3 and 6pm.
This is two miles northeast of the location of the Jacob Creek tragedy in 2003 where six were washed off the roadway.
