30% of my home town (Coffeyville) is currently underwater; my wife's aunt and uncle and most everyone else who resides on the east side of town have lost all they had. Fredonia, a small rural community north of us was nearly wiped out and a few other area towns and cities were greatly affected as well. Prayers and well wishes would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks; and thank you for letting me share.
Coffeyville residents cope with major flooding
Posted By: Prashanthi Musapet
Authorities shut down the east side of Coffeyville after major flooding causes harmful conditions to area residents.
Officials issued a mandatory evacuation order with around 2,500 evacuated so far.
Some didn't follow the notice and firefighters had to conduct 50 water rescues.
The flood conditions were made worse when contaminants were found in the water.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment are continuing to investigate the situation while a local refinery is being considered a possible cause.
