Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 9:01 AM CDT on May 24, 2016

Expires 6:30 PM EDT on May 24, 2016


The National Weather Service in Hastings has issued a

* Flood Warning for...
Rooks County in north central Kansas...

* until 530 PM CDT Tuesday

* as of 830 am CDT... heavy rain from overnight had ended across the
area. However... radar estimation... along with a few gauge
reports... indicate that most of Rooks County received 2 to 5
inches of rain since Monday evening... with localized higher
amounts closer to 6 inches possible especially in the Palco and
Zurich areas. As a result... it is likely that fairly widespread
flooding of small streams and rural roads will continue through
the day as this heavy rain gradually runs off.
Fortunately... little to no additional rain is expected until late
this afternoon or tonight.

* Some locations that could experience flooding include...
Plainville... Stockton... Palco... Woodston... Damar... Zurich... Codell
and Webster State Park... but especially rural areas of the County.

This includes... but is not limited to... the following streams and
drainages... Elm Creek... Paradise creek... Webster Reservoir
area... South Fork Solomon river... Spring Creek... Lost
Creek... Boxelder creek.

This areal Flood Warning replaces a Flash Flood Warning previously
in effect for much of Rooks County.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around... don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.
