Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected.
However... all interested parties should take necessary precautions
immediately.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will continue to cause flooding
of small creeks and streams... most notably the polecat Creek... as
well as farm and country roads.

Never 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.

been issued for southwestern Butler County around 6 PM last evening.

Public Information Statement

Statement as of 6:00 AM CDT on May 24, 2016


... On this date in weather history...

In 1990, four tornadoes roared across parts of central
Kansas, of which 2 were strong f3s. One F3 tornado that
had a track 26 miles long and three quarters of a mile
wide tore through Barton, Rice and Ellsworth counties.
Six were injured. Eighty Eight cars of a 125 car freight
train were derailed, some of which were stacked 3 to 4
cars high. It caused around $500,000 damage. The second
F3 tornado, believed to have touched down multiple times,
raced 60 miles across Rice, McPherson and Marion counties
and was one quarter mile wide this tornado also got on
the 'wrong track' as it, too, hit a freight train,
derailing 87 of 103 cars. Nearly $3 million damage
resulted in McPherson and Marion counties alone. In
1962, severe thunderstorms hit Reno and Harvey counties
with a barrage of hail that reached 4 inches in diameter.
The giant hail caused around $1 million damage just
southwest of Hutchinson alone.Both counties were also
hit by an F3 tornado. The Reno County twister injured 6
between Nickerson and Hutchinson. The Harvey County
tornado moved very erratically along a 10-mile track.
The width is unknown, but the twister destroyed 2 gas
stations, several trailers, and lifted at the southwest
edge of Newton.
