Minor flooding issues this morning
Centered around the Joplin area
From the rain that we picked up yesterday and this morning, it has resulted in some minor flooding issues across the Joplin area. Flood advisories are out for Crawford, Cherokee, Barton, Jasper and Newton counties until 12:15 this afternoon. The main concern is focusing on some minor flooding issues for some area creeks, streams and low water crossings. As the rain tapers off this afternoon, the break in the action should alleviate these minor flooding issues.
