Steady rain swelling Missouri, Kansas streams, rivers

May 24, 2015

— Heavy storms across Missouri and Kansas have been pushing streams and rivers out of their banks, and forecasters say more rain is likely this week.

The National Weather Service issued flood warnings Sunday for central Missouri, including along the Missouri River near Chamois and Gasconade east of Jefferson City, where minor flooding is expected early this week.

Several tornado warnings were issued for western and central Missouri, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

A flash flood watch was also issued Sunday for sections of Kansas, including in the southeast and the Wichita area, where another round of thunderstorms was expected on already saturated ground and could lead to minor flooding along area rivers.
