Kansas City, MO - Rescuers pulled more than 20 students from a school bus this morning after it had been trapped by rising floodwaters.

The bus was driving near Hillcrest and Oldham shortly before 7 a.m. when it became trapped by rising floodwater.

Students on board told KMBC-TV9 that the bus shut off when the water rose above the bus steps.

Once the children were taken off, another school bus took them to school.

More than three inches of rain fell Monday morning in Kansas City, following a very wet weekend where multiple inches of rain drenched the region.
