Heavy rains cause flooding in Quincy

2 months, 4 weeks ago by Scott Hardy

Airport gets over 4 inches of rain; some parts of southern Adams County see 8 inches

The National Weather Service says that more rain than expected fell Monday night and Tuesday morning in the Quincy area.

Quincy Regional Airport reported getting 4.38 inches of rain from the storm. That caused flash flooding for the second time in less than 2 weeks. A car was submerged on Seminary Road, across from Quincy University's north campus. The driver had to be rescued by emergency personal. Many other streets in the area were also covered in several feet of water. Overnight, a large tree was downed east of 16th on Maine Street. Police blocked the road until it was cleared up. The Quincy Fire Department also responded to a home struck by lightning in the area. Other local towns also received heavy rains. Pittsfield received 3.34 inches, while Saverton got just over 3 inches. Flash Flood Warnings were issued for southern Adams and northern Pike Counties, after that area received 3 to 6 inches of rain. That included reports of up to 8 inches of rain in the Payson area. There was also a Flash Flood Warning for north-central Adams County, including Mendon and Loraine. That extended into central Hancock, Lee and Clark Counties.

A Flash Flood Watch for most of the area remains in effect until Noon Wednesday.
