Greenwood... Elk... Cowley... Sedgwick... Harvey... Harper... southern Rice
and Chautauqua counties...

At 637 am CDT, Sedgwick County emergency management reported
numerous roads and intersections were closed due to high water
across the Wichita area. Water levels continue to run high in many
areas across southern Kansas.

result in flooding of low-lying areas and creeks and streams into
the afternoon.

Winfield, Andover, Haysville, Augusta, Wellington, Park city, Valley
Center, Bel Aire, Mulvane, Goddard, Rose Hill, Hesston, Maize and

deaths occur in vehicles.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.
