Flash Flooding Likely in Plains as Heavy Rainfall Continues Today

There is a 'high' probability of excessive rainfall in Northern Oklahoma and southeast Kansas, with a moderate threat in northern Oklahoma, southeast Oklahoma, southwestern and central Missouri.

As of 6:26 AM CDT, several flash flooding events were ongoing. With another 1-3 inches of rain expected today, the situation will only get worse today and tomorrow before things begin to ease off.

I advise everyone in the 'high' risk area to prepare for evacuations if you are by an overflowing stream of creek. If you are driving and see a flooded roadway, remember: Turn around, don't drown.
