Forecast Rains Raise Fears of More Kansas Flooding

KSAL StaffAugust 6, 2013

More wet weather is on the way for drenched Kansas counties where swollen rivers are raising new flooding fears.

Heavy rains that began last week have already caused flash flooding over roads and swamped some homes in central Kansas. But emergency managers are now more concerned about the storms expected to begin Wednesday and stretch into the weekend.

The National Weather Service says it has been raining off and on since July 21, with Wichita getting 13.4 inches from that date through Monday.

State climatologist Mary Knapp says the drought monitor update to be issued later this week will show the end of drought conditions in central, north-central and parts of southeast Kansas. The drought persists in far western Kansas.
