Wow.This is one reason for "Turn around, don't drown". This stretch of Donmyer Road in Eastern Saline County didn't survive the floodwater.

This is the reason barricades remain after floodwaters recede, give road crews a chance to check the roads before you take a ride you won't forget.

I've seen some of that on some of the back dirt roads. It doesn't look deep, but under that water is a deep hole.

Anyone know if Highway 50 is still open today? I need to go from Halstead to Hutchinson.

I need to go to halstead this morning from newton, how should I go?

Chris McGinn can I get across on 72nd. This doesn’t show it closed, but I can’t believe that the river isn’t over the road. I need to get to the farm later today.

Also is the cemetery under water? People are wondering & I don’t know.

So is hiway 50 open still?

Wish the map was clearer to zoom in on

When will there be an update?

Do u think hwy 50 will close

Here's a behind-the-scenes look of some of your local flood preparation in Harvey County. All the cities in the county came together this afternoon for a planning meeting to share ideas, identify potential needs and discuss how we can help each other out.

We want to have those plans and preparations in place now so we can anticipate needs as the flood threat continues (and this is a good spot for another reminder that you should have a plan in place in case you need to put it into action, too).

Stay safe. More rain is on the way this weekend.
