Hillsboro and most of Marion County were drenched with rain from Thursday through Sunday, with more than 6 inches falling, by some estimates. A deluge on Thursday afternoon in Hillsboro made the Municipal Golf Course one large water hazard (top photo). Traffic was stopped for a time near this drainage area because water was running over the street. On Sunday afternoon, another drenching resulted in several roads in Marion County, including Kanza southeast of Hillsboro (right photo), being closed on Monday because of flooded creeks and rivers. Beyond the concern of some travelers and homeowners about flooding, local citizens seemed to take the situation in stride, even grateful in the light of enormous tornado damage suffered in Greensburg and other areas of the state.
