08/01/2016 West Frankfort, IL – Close Lightning & Street Flood

Shot Date: August 1, 2016

Overnight storms across Missouri that left behind flash flooding eventually moved into southern Illinois in the late morning hours leading to more flooding in many communities across the region. The town of West Frankfort picked up over an inch of rain in less than 30 minutes when the strong line of storms pushed across I-57 about two hours southeast of St. Louis. These storms brought intense lightning along with the rains that flooded out numerous streets in West Frankfort. This coming on the heals of one of the wettest July-months ever in the region, putting August off to a very strong start with more rain and storms expected throughout the week.
