Kansas Inland Flooding

In Kansas, there are nearly 130,000 people living in areas at an elevated risk of inland flooding.

 Kansas saw particularly dramatic shifts in winter precipitation, with 79% percent of stations experiencing a lower percentage of winter precipitation falling as snow.

Across most of the country, the heaviest downpours are happening more frequently, delivering a deluge in place of what would have been routine heavy rain.
