Serious Flood Threat in Kansas and Missouri

Flash flood warnings (maroon) and flood warnings (green) are in effect for many areas of Kansas and Missouri. Five inches of rain in the last three hours have fallen in the central Flint Hills. Just received a report of K-58 closed in that area. U.S. 54 was closed for a time near Yates Center. 

The graphic below is the radar-estimated rainfall. The pinkish colors on the Greenwood-Lyon county line are estimates of more than ten inches. Rivers are going to be on the rise the next 24 hours. If you plan to travel, please check on road and river conditions
The Kansas City area had flash flooding and a number of water rescues Tuesday evening.
