July 28—A localized thunderstorm Sunday drenched some areas of Lebanon and left others with nothing more than a good soaking.

In fewer than 90 minutes, the Lebanon Wastewater Treatment plant on Lafayette Avenue registered 2.5 inches of rain, Wastewater Operations Manager Bob Waples said Monday afternoon.

“It seemed like it was just the north side of town that got hammered,” Waples said.

A photograph of people paddling a canoe down a flooded street in the Hickory Meadows subdivision went viral, getting play on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

The Lebanon Street Department received several reports of flooding, said administrative assistant Lana Fairfield

No damage reports were made to county officials, though, said Rachel Hanson of the Boone County Emergency Management Agency. Dispatchers at the Boone County Sheriff’s Office did receive some reports of flooded roads, she said.

Prairie Creek downstream of Lebanon reached moderate flood stage, cresting at 11.88 feet at 1:15 a.m. Monday.
