HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- Drivers have been urged to stay off Hutchinson streets after more than 4 inches of rain deluged the town and caused widespread flooding.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/14Weqjn) even large military-type vehicles couldn't get through some streets Sunday morning.

Several cars flooded and stalled out in floodwaters early Sunday and blocked local streets. Several basements also were flooded, including one with up to a foot of water.

The National Weather Service described the flooding as big. Rainfall amounts ranged from 3.8 inches to 4.8 inches.

Rain continued through the morning, adding to the flooding woes.
