Sunday, June 1, 2014 did not look that promising to me and everything seemed to scream MCS/Squall Line. With that I decided to drive West Central and Central Kansas to see what all I could find regarding any storms. What I found is that the state is still really dry and needs more rain. The outflow from all of the storm in the west kicked up dirt on Highway 81 including a lot of tumble weed. Than on my approach back to my home base in Salina, KS the squall line/MCS was approaching. Knowing that the storm was not severe warned anymore I went ahead and drove through the west side of town on Ninth St. to document the street flooding.
1. Driving shot of high winds on Highway 4 heading east with a strong outflow form the storm that is to the north along Interstate 70. This outflow kicked up a lot of tumble weeds.
2. Driving shot and zoomed in shot of a the outflow from a storm to the south/south west of my location on Highway 4 kicking up a pretty good dust storm
3. Close up shot of a SUV driving through the outflow dirt that was kicked up from a storm to the south/southwest of my location on Highway 4
4. Driving zoomed shot of a truck driving through the street flooding on Ninth St. on the west side of Salina, KS. The rain was still coming down at a good rate.
5. Zoomed in shot of a car driving through street flooding on the west side of Salina, KS in the right hand turning lane

9. Medium shot of the corner of Ninth St. and Republic in Salina, KS of the street flooding at the corner. The excessive water has taken over the corner and gone up into the grass. You can see the rushing water in the center of the flow rushing towards the drain.
