Heavy Rains Threaten River Flooding In Central U.S.

A swath of heavy rainfall and possible severe weather moving across the central United States on Thursday is threatening to flood several areas where rivers are already swollen from previous rains, the National Weather Service said.

“It won’t take much added rain to cause flooding,” said Bob Oravec, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland.
