The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Douglas County effective until 6:00 PM Thursday.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue in the Eudora through this afternoon. We could see upwards of 2 inches of rain from the storm currently moving through the area. With previous rainfall saturating the ground, additional rainfall could lead to flooding of creeks and streams and inundate low lying areas including fields and pastures. Thunderstorms with torrential rains could cause additional flooding in town causing streets to become impassible and possibly dangerous.

This is only a watch meaning flooding is possible but is not imminent. Motorists are urged to be on the lookout for high water situations and avoid driving through any flood waters.

We will keep you up to date on any road closures or high water situations as they are reported to us.
