High Water Prompting Closed Campsites, Roads

KSAL StaffAugust 8, 2013

Much of soggy south central Kansas remains under a flood warning as more rain is forecast to fall into already full waterways.

The National Weather Service says 5 to 6 inches of rain fell early Thursday in Clark and Ford counties. Several county roads are impassable, particularly near Kingsdown and Blooms. In Sedgwick, Harper, Sumner, Kingman and Reno counties, between 3 and 4 inches of rain have fallen since midnight, and another 2 to 3 inches are possible.

The high water closed about 40 campsites at the Marion Reservoir and park officials said reservations in the Cottonwood Point and Hillsboro cove are cancelled until Aug. 29.

And students in Argonia will get two more weeks of summer vacation, after earlier storms blew off roofs of two schools, soaking classrooms.
