Franklin County in east central Kansas...
Lyon County in east central Kansas...
Osage County in east central Kansas...

Another one quarter to one half inch of rain will be possible this
afternoon in the warned areas.

* Locations impacted include...
all of Anderson... Coffey... southern Douglas... Franklin... Lyon and
Osage counties. Any communities in the warned area should be alert

This includes the Kansas Turnpike between mile markers 117 and 164.

This includes Interstate 35 between mile markers 128 and 199.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on
small creeks and streams... and ponding of water on country roads and
farmland along the banks of creeks and streams.

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
safely.

Do not underestimate the power of flood waters. Only a few inches of
rapidly flowing water can quickly carry away your vehicle.
