Turn Around, Don't Drown

To say that 2019 was a wet year in Kansas is an understatement, according to information from the state’s emergency departments. It was a record year in many cases including the wettest March-May period for many areas of the state as well as the wettest May on record. Miami County was in the area that received up to 20-30 inches more rain than average. When you tack on that extra rainfall to what is normally received in a given year, that’s almost 7 ft of rain in a year’s time!

With that amount of rain, many roadways across the state were inundated with floodwaters. If you are driving and come across a flooded road, remember the safety saying "turn around, don’t drown!"
