Flood warning continues for Spring River near Waco

 (From the National Weather Service)

...The Flood Warning continues for the following rivers in Kansas...

  Spring River above Baxter Springs affecting Cherokee County
  Spring River near Waco affecting Jasper County

.Recent heavy rainfall across the area has caused river levels to
rise above flood stage. Interests are urged to follow river levels
and forecasts through late week as additional rainfall is expected.


Do not drive through flowing water. Nearly half of all flood
fatalities are vehicle related. As little as 6 inches of water may
cause you to lose control of your vehicle. Two feet of water will
carry most vehicles away.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio for later statements.

Additional river information can be found on our Advanced Hydrologic
Prediction Service page at http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/
