A flash flood warning issued for parts of the Kansas City metro area is in effect until 1:45 a.m. Thursday.
The National Weather Service issued the warning Wednesday night for areas including North Kansas City, Parkville and Gladstone.
Flash flooding caused problems for drivers in the affected area. Emergency crews responded to a water rescue about 9:45 p.m. near northbound U.S. 169 and Northwest Briarcliff Parkway.
Several agencies also reported lighting strikes throughout the metro area, with several emergency crews responding to house fires.
The weather may have contributed to a fatal wreck about 9:30 p.m. on Interstate 435 near Oldham Road. One person was reportedly killed in the wreck, which caused the closure of southbound I-435 between Gregory and 87th Street.
