The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Warning for Independence, Kansas.  The Verdigris River is predicted to rise to near 42.1 feet on Monday, May 27. 

If actual rainfall amounts are greater or more concentrated than predicted upstream, river levels could rise quickly above the predicted amounts.  We continue to encourage residents and business owners to complete preparations to protect their interests in case the river rises above predictions. 

A briefing will be held at 11 AM on Facebook Live.
