Rain showers and a few thunderstorms developed during the evening on Wednesday, June 10th and continued during the early morning hours on Thursday, June 11th.  The heaviest rainfall occurred across north central Kansas in Phillips, Rooks and northwest Osborne counties.  Rainfall amounts averaged 2 to 5 inches and caused rivers and creeks to rise, and resulted in lowland flooding.  The Bow Creek near Stockton, and the South Fork of the Solomon River near Damar and Woodston rose above flood stage, and then receded.
