Flooding Causes Bridge Collapse In Craig County

Posted: Updated:

Flood waters have forced the closure of State Highway 10 in Craig County after the bridge over Big Creek is said to have collapsed.

It's happening in far western Craig County, about 16 miles west of Welch.

As much as 10 inches of rain have fallen across the area and across parts of southeastern Kansas over the past two days, forcing rivers and streams out of their banks. In addition, a tornado touched down north of Welch early Tuesday morning, damaging two homes.

The Red Cross says it is assisting six families who suffered flood and/or tornado damage.

State Highway 10 is also closed about five miles east of Lenapah in Nowata County for high water from the Verdigris River, which was expected to crest about six feet above flood stage Tuesday evening.

Many county roads have also been flooded and water rescues have been conducted for residents trapped in their homes.
