LINDSBORG, Kan. (AP) — Emergency management workers in Lindsborg have been going door to door today (TUE) to assess damage from flash flooding that forced the evacuation of several homes. As many as 140 homes were flooded yesterday when four to five inches of rain fell in about an hour. Emergency crews used boats to evacuate about 35 or 40 people from their homes. The water had mostly receded by this morning so people could return home and start cleaning up. Five buildings flooded at Bethel College in North Newton, with the most significant damage at the basketball gymnasium where the floor was ruined. More rain is possible for the region starting Thursday.
