Kansas City needs more rain to break drought

For the year, the Kansas City area has fallen behind on precipitation, getting only 23.48 inches compared with the norm of 29.30 inches. It’s a far cry from 36 years ago on Sept. 12, when the Kansas City area was inundated with rainfall and flooding. Who could forget the torrent of water surging from Brush Creek to fill the Country Club Plaza in 1977?
