We are hearing of significant FLASH FLOODING that has occurred along the Kansas Turnpike between Matfield Green and Emporia in Lyon County.  Water rescues have been occurring with witnesses posting images.

This is close to the area that experienced Flash Flooding a few years ago. Witnesses do confirm vehicles being swept off the Turnpike. 

We have just confirmed one man has been killed after his vehicle was swept off the roadway by floodwaters.

If you have details or images – 


Water has receded along the turnpike and one lane of traffic is moving while the event winds down.
