  Northeastern Shawnee County in east central Kansas...
  Southeastern Jackson County in northeastern Kansas...

* Until 1100 PM CDT

* At 857 PM CDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to

  this area.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  Valley Falls, Oskaloosa, Perry, McLouth, Meriden, Hoyt, Ozawkie,

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate route.
