Heavy rains have some Lyon County Roads under water, and led to a water rescue Wednesday morning.

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office told 13 NEWS a Fed Ex driver tried to go over a low-water crossing bridge on Road 210, about four miles north of Emporia, and got stuck. With water in Taylor Creek rising rapidly, the driver called for help.

The Sheriff’s Office said the Emporia Fire Department Water Rescue Team responded and helped the driver to safety.

Much of Lyon County remains under a flood warning through Friday. The Sheriff’s Office says drivers should be alert. Several rural roads, especially along the Cottonwood River south and east of Emporia, remain closed.
