Heavy Rain Causes Flooding Through Springfield Area


It’s becoming increasingly common in Springfield… an intense downpour followed by widespread flooding.

 

Most of the waters have receded now, but getting around the city Thursday night proved to be enormously challenging after two-and-a-half inches of rain fell in about an hour. Numerous streets and viaducts were flooded… several cars were stranded in water up to their windows on South Sixth Street, just south of the Hoogland Center for the Arts.

 

The Hoogland and other downtown buildings also experienced flooding as storm sewers were overwhelmed. And many people are still trying to get water out of their basements this morning.
