extending from near York Nebraska... southwestward through the Clay
Center... Red Cloud and northwestern Smith County Kansas areas
received widespread coverage of 2 to 4 inches of rain overnight.

resulting in additional flooding concerns.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
