September 21, 2009

The National Weather Service has issued an urban and small stream flood advisory for a few Missouri and Kansas Counties, including Leavenworth County on the Kansas side. The advisory is in effect until 3:30 p.m.

At 9:43 a.m., National Weather Service Doppler Radar indicated thunderstorms with heavy rainfall across the advisory area. Doppler radar estimated rainfall rates in excess of 1 inch per hour common with these storms, with localized rainfall possibly approaching 2 inches.

Runoff from excessive rainfall can cause minor flooding to occur, especially along small streams and near low water crossings.
