The heaviest rains were around Wichita and from Lafayette Co., Missouri along the Missouri River counties to around Columbia and Boone Co. See warning for major flooding on the Blackwater River below.
Given that Wichita gets about 33 inches of rain a year, the figures below are amazing. They are from the NWS office at Wichita's Eisenhower National Airport.
The second area of heavier rains is in Missouri.

Please scroll down to see rainfall amount forecast for the remainder of the holiday weekend.

Here is a photo of the flooding in the Wichita suburb of Derby which had just short of 7 inches yesterday (9" in the last three days):
