Flash Flooding Forces Evacuations in Manhattan

Some residents of Manhattan had to be evacuated this (THUR) morning due to flash flooding. Matt Brown was one of them. His apartment complex was flooded. Brown lives on the 3rd floor, so his possessions were unaffected -- with the exception of his car, which was almost completely submerged by rising water.

Red Cross officials in Riley County say about 50 displaced residents took shelter at St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Manhattan.
