Crews conducted multiple water rescues in the Kansas City metro Saturday night.

Jessica Loya was driving back from dinner when her car got stuck and filled with water in Riverside, Missouri.

“It started filling with water, and it was somewhat terrifying, but luckily seems OK. Everyone’s OK,” Loya said. “I couldn’t get the door open, and that was even more terrifying. But it seemed fine once I got out of the water.” 

Kansas City, Missouri Fire Department Chief Paul Berardi tweeted multiple water rescues and road closures. 

The KCMO Fire Department was also at 43rd at Pennsylvania for a water rescue where two people were on the roof of a car. 

Portions of Interstate 35 were closed due to flooding Saturday night. 

A flash flood warning is in effect for the KC metro until early Sunday morning.
