Clogged storm drains can cause potential flood problems

Clogged storm drains are one of the main reasons for flooded streets, which is why Kansas City has a solution to stay ahead of storms.
 
The Kansas City Water Services Department has six crews to keep the city's more than 44,000 storm drains clear from debris.
 
They use machines, shovels and at times their hands to unclog storm drains. 
 
Crews have cleared nearly 8,000 storm drains so far in 2014.
