    Default Area flooding.


    0 Not allowed!
    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.

    Much appreciated my friend; if I hear of anything I will be sure to let you know. Our local hospital is currently having a clothing drive; I can get you a mailing address if you'd like.

    Will do buddy; I actually have some good news. I just did a little recon and much of the water has already receded. On the down side I'm still cut off from my wife who went to take care of her physically disabled mom and we got cut off from each other. Hopefully the waters will recede enough there tomorrow for her to get back home.

    We were very fortunate that the flood waters never reached our home; it stayed about three blocks north of us and about four to five blocks east of us, and we're up hill from it in both directions.

    The prayers and good thoughts are very much appreciated; Thank you. :)

    Thanks; the good news is that as of yesterday the waters had receded about three blocks from what I could tell.
