Heavy rain last (WED) night and early this (THUR) morning caused flash flooding in Manhattan and parts of Riley and Pottawatomie counties. Pat Collins, with Riley County's emergency management team, says rising water along the Kansas River forced authorities to move about 80 people out of a low-lying apartment building.
Officials are also keeping close watch on Rock Creek in Ogden near the Fort Riley Army base. The stream has spilled over its banks, inundating homes and roadways. Flooding is expected to last for
several hours before waters subside.
