Heavy rain floods intersections Sunday night

Monday, June 25, 2007

A quick but heavy rain that passed through Southeast Missouri on Sunday night flooded several intersections in Cape Girardeau and landed at least four cars in water up to the windows, according to Cape Gir­ar­deau police.

The rain began at about 6:30 p.m. and calls reporting high water started shortly after. About 15 flooded areas were reported, said Robert Phelps, a dispatcher with Cape Girardeau Police Department.

The roads were mostly clear by 8 p.m. and Phelps said the water would recede by this morning. Most of the vehicles caught in the water were towed or brought home by the owners and no one was injured.
