... A Flood Warning for small streams remains in effect until 130 PM
CDT Sunday for Cowley and Sumner counties...

At 221 am CDT... Doppler radar indicated the heavy rainfall had
exited east of the warned area. Consequently... the risk for
widespread heavy rain has ended for the time being across south-
central Kansas. However... excessive runoff from the widespread 2 to
3 inches of rain that occurred across the area yesterday will
continue to cause areas of street flooding... flooding of various
County roads and low-lying areas... as well as flooding along the
banks of streams and creeks into at least Sunday afternoon.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Arkansas City... Winfield... Wellington... Caldwell... Oxford...
Argonia... South Haven... Dexter... Geuda Springs... Mayfield... Milan...
Hunnewell... Perth... Maple City and Strother Field Airport.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding. If flooding is observed act quickly. Move up to
higher ground to escape flood waters. Do not stay in areas subject to
flooding when water begins rising.

Ellsworth counties. Described as a huge black wall... the
tempest injured 6 and derailed 88 cars of a 125 car
freight train... some of which were stacked 3 to 4 cars

times... produced a path 60 miles long and around one
quarter mile wide across Rice... McPherson and Marion
counties. This tornado also hit a freight
train... derailing 87 of 103 cars. This second tornado
