TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! SPRING RAIN SHUTS DOWN KANSAS CITY STREETS AMID OLD AND BUSTED WATER AND SEWER SYSTEM FLOODING!!!
Kansas City learned about the flooding on local streets amid generally light spring rain FIRST on TKC last night.
Right now we have more confirmation and EXCLUSIVE news . . .
STREETS THROUGHOUT KANSAS CITY ARE SHUT DOWN THIS MORNING THANKS TO OUR OLD AND BUSTED SEWER, WATER AND STORM DRAIN SYSTEM!!!
More . . .
ON THE WESTSIDE AND THROUGHOUT MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY THE (LIGHT) RAIN IS FLOODING AND SHUTTING DOWN AT LEAST A DOZEN STREETS!!!
One more . . .
PARTS OF SOUTHWEST TRAFFICWAY ARE SHUT DOWN AND A GREAT DEAL OF THE BOULEVARD HAS BEEN UNDERWATER SINCE LAST NIGHT!!!
In our relentless pursuit of the scoop we decided to take some pix . . . Also, because it was on the way home from getting gas station coffee . . . Despite a tragic detour . . .
That's right, we nearly drowned in order to bring you d-bags FIRST news . . .
Funny thing . . . They just finished fixing this bridge at a cost of MILLIONS not even two years ago . .
This scene is being repeated throughout Kansas City as our water infrastructure is CLEARLY BROKEN despite so much cash going toward the toy train streetcar.
And here's why it all sucks so badly . . .
- Kansas City Keeps Raising Taxes For Water And Sewer
- Water Bills Around Kansas City Are Spiking At Record Levels
- Still . . . The Local Water And Sewer System IS CLEARLY Worsening GIVEN That Light Spring Rain Has Put So Many Streets Underwater
- Finally . . . Mayor And City Council STILL REFUSE To Let Missouri Audit The Water Department Despite Some Serious Signs Of Mismanagement.
This is a REAL PROBLEM not just TKC gripping . . . We expect other newsie outlets to come on board with this one . . . Given that it's raining in JoCo too BUT they don't need scuba gear or a canoe like KCMO residents.
