LINDSBORG, Kan. (AP) -- Emergency management workers will be out in Lindsborg assessing damage from flash flooding that forced several evacuations.

McPherson County emergency management director Dillard Webster says emergency crews had to evacuate about 35 to 40 people on Monday because of the flooding. The crews used boats to evacuate some of the residents. Only one injury was reported.

Between 4 and 5 inches of rain fell in about an hour Monday. City officials said a retention pond couldn't hold all the water, causing flooding in the streets and about 50 homes on the town's north side.

Heavy rains also caused problems across southeast Kansas, where many roads were covered. The National Weather Service says the water was receding in much of the area early Tuesday but urged drivers to remain cautious.
