KANSAS CITY FLASH FOOD WARNING TONIGHT!!! USE CAUTION: SEVERAL MIDTOWN STREETS UNDERWATER!!!
Was on my way to a "corona party" tonight but the weather didn't cooperate . . . And so, TKC lives to see another day as I looked out upon a river of poop next to the beautiful County Club Plaza which serves as another reminder that KCMO long-term storm sewer infrastructure FAIL is every bit as pressing as the need for social justice.
To wit . . .
AS ALWAYS A GREAT MANY KANSAS CITY STREETS ARE FLOODED AND NEARLY IMPASSABLE AMID HEAVY RAINS!!!
Here's the official warning and a reminder that EVERY resident of this town suffers because of a legacy of infrastructure neglect at City Hall whilst politicos distract the electorate with development pipe dreams and culture war crusades.
The National Weather Service has issued a FLASH FLOOD WARNING for some cities in the Kansas City metro area until 12:15 a.m.
Anyone in those areas should avoid driving or walking through flood waters.
NWS also reported that street flooding has occurred across parts of the southern Kansas City metro area.
