Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 9:56 AM CDT on May 28, 2015

Expires 11:00 AM EDT on May 29, 2015


The National Weather Service in Wichita has issued a

* Flood Warning for...
north central Reno County in south central Kansas...
Rice County in central Kansas...

* until 1000 am CDT Friday

* at 954 am CDT... emergency management reported flooding over
several rural roads due to the Little Arkansas River... Cow Creek
and other small streams in the warned area as well fields being
filled with water. The water will be slow to recede with the
saturated ground soil... and any additional rain forecast through
Friday could worsen the flooding problems.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Lyons... Sterling... Nickerson... Little River... Chase... Bushton...
Geneseo... Alden... Raymond... WillowBrook... Frederick and silica.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... as well as farm and country roads. Do not
attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.

* a portion of central Kansas... including the following areas...
Barton... Ellsworth... Lincoln... McPherson... Rice... Russell and
Saline.

* Through Friday evening.

* A few more rounds of showers and thunderstorms will affect the

monitor the weather situation closely for the next couple of
days.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
