Flood Warnings, Watches in Effect from Southern Texas to Northern Wisconsin


Flood warnings and flash flood watches are in effect for a band stretching from southwestern Texas all the way into northwestern Wisconsin, according to the National Weather Service.

“A few roadways have been barricaded due to high water,” the agency said. Parts of Kansas City, Overland Park, Olathe, and several other cities likely will see flooding today. “Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are possible in the warned area.”

In eastern Iowa, where flooding has been an ongoing problem the past couple of weeks, it’s more of the same to start the week.

Rain and thunderstorms are possible throughout the entire area today and tonight. Heavy rains are most likely this afternoon along and east of the Mississippi River, the NWS said. Flash flood watches are in effect for much of the region.
