THE FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR * Portions of South Central and Southeast Kansas, including the following areas: In South Central Kansas: Butler, Cowley, Sedgwick, and Sumner. In Southeast Kansas: Allen, Chautauqua, Elk, Greenwood, Labette, Montgomery, Neosho, Wilson, and Woodson. * Through Saturday Morning. * Numerous showers and embedded thunderstorms will continue to occur across nearly all of Southern Kansas through early Saturday Morning. Additional rainfalls from around 1 to 2 inches are likely with the heavier rainfalls occurring across Southeast Kansas. * Several locations have received 1 to 3 inches of rainfall since Wednesday Night and with soils nearly saturated, any additional rainfall would cause runoff. Therefore, flooding is likely, especially in low lying and poor drainage areas. The heavy rains would also cause rises on rivers, creeks and streams where flooding is possible. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in flood prone areas should be prepared to take action should flooding develop. && $$
