Wichita receives 1.74 inches of rain overnight

WICHITA, Kansas – Overnight rain was a welcome sight, and it was enough to cause some traffic headaches for commuters along a busy highway.

Near the Oliver and Kellogg interchange, high water was blamed for several accidents, and police were forced to close down the area.

A few minor injuries were reported, and the roads were re-opened once crews were called in the help get the water to recede.

Wichita’s Mid-Continent Airport officially reported 1.74 inches of rain.

It is the highest daily rain fall since August 13, 2013.

So far, Wichita’s precipitation stands at 4.3 inches of rain for the year.
