Weather spotters say more than three inches of rain fell in Springfield in the early morning hours today, leaving some drivers in over their heads… almost.
Those heavy rains flooded a number of streets and viaducts… and the rising waters in turn trapped motorists who misjudged the depth and mistakenly thought they could drive through it. Fire Chief Ken Fustin says his crews assisted more than two dozen motorists in the overnight hours. No one was hurt.
The storms also caused some wind damage west of Springfield… and in Morgan and Logan Counties.
