Heavy downpours were causing problems on Shawnee area roadways late Wednesday night as emergency personnel responded to a few stalled vehicles and street crews were busy blocking off flooded roadways until waters could recede.

According to scanner reports, the MacArthur Street tunnel was reportedly flooded at about 11:30 p.m., while water was ponding on several area roadways, including Kickapoo at Kickapoo Spur.
