The National Weather Service in Wichita has issued a flood warning for parts of Sedgwick, Reno and Harvey County.

Estimated rainfall of two to four inches has occurred in the area.

The weather service says excessive runoff will cause streams and other low-lying area to flood.

Officials say do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the road.  The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely.
