More than 4 inches of rain falls

Water is pumped across A Street near S. Sewell  Ave.
Thursday morning following Wednesday night rains.

The Burlington Avenue underpass flooded, other Hastings streets were closed and one river may soon run out of its banks after a heavy rainstorm passed through south central Nebraska overnight.

“The intensity of the rain must have been unbelievable,” said Hastings Street Superintendent Dick Douglas.

The Hastings airport received 4.13 inches of rain overnight, including 3.49 inches between midnight and 5 a.m.
