THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN WICHITA HAS ISSUED A

* FLOOD WARNING FOR...
  NORTHEASTERN RICE COUNTY IN CENTRAL KANSAS...

* UNTIL 915 AM CDT WEDNESDAY

* AT 3 PM CDT...LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORTED THAT FLOODING
  CONTINUED ACROSS THE AREA. THIS INCLUDED SEVERAL RURAL ROADS
  NEAR THE LITTLE ARKANSAS RIVER INCLUDING NEAR 26TH ROAD AND
  AVENUE Q WHICH IS JUST NORTH OF LITTLE RIVER.

* SOME LOCATIONS THAT WILL EXPERIENCE FLOODING INCLUDE...
  LITTLE RIVER AND GENESEO.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

MOST FLOOD DEATHS OCCUR IN AUTOMOBILES. NEVER DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO
AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE ROADWAY. FLOOD WATERS ARE USUALLY
DEEPER THAN THEY APPEAR. JUST ONE FOOT OF FLOWING WATER IS POWERFUL
ENOUGH TO SWEEP VEHICLES OFF THE ROAD. WHEN ENCOUNTERING FLOODED
ROADS MAKE THE SMART CHOICE...TURN AROUND...DONT DROWN.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE
ROADWAY. THE WATER DEPTH MAY BE TOO GREAT TO ALLOW YOUR CAR TO CROSS
SAFELY. MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND.
