Dangerous "Train Echo" = Flash Flooding Setting Up

This is a radar map of eastern Kansas and western Missouri. The thunderstorms -- which are causing heavy to torrential rains -- are lining up in what meteorologists call a "train echo" (TE). In a TE, each of the thunderstorms move down the line like the train cars move down the track. Extreme rains can accumulate in these situations, leading to major flash flooding. 

Please click on the illustration to see if you are in these areas and, if so, be prepared for major flooding.
