Governor declares emergency over flooding

It allows state resources to help with recovery

Governor Jeff Colyer has issued a disaster declaration for the state in response to the recent heavy rains that have caused flash flooding in a number of counties.

The governor said the declaration will allow for state resources and manpower to help with response and recovery operations.   Counties will be added to the declaration as requests for assistance are received. 

Rainfall amounts have ranged from 4 to 8 inches across central, south central and southwest Kansas from the rain activity that began over the weekend and ended Tuesday.
