WICHITA, Kan. — One of the wettest Junes in Wichita history had a wet ending Monday night, as a storm kept dropping rain into the first morning of July.

The result was a lot of wet streets, and flooding in several Kansas cities.

Mid-Continent Airport reported 2.25 inches of rain between midnight and 3:00 a.m. Tuesday. That came at the end of a June which was the third-wettest on record in Wichita, at more than ten inches.

Extensive street flooding was reported in Hutchinson and Newton, as a storm line moved through. Several roads in Meade were flooded as well.

Several locations in KAKEland also had hail. Nickel-sized hail fell near the Hutchinson airport.

Yet the only report of possible storm-related damage involved lightning. A strike may have sparked a small fire around 2:00 a.m. at a home on South Stonybrook Court, near Webb and Pawnee. No one was injured.
