The National Weather Service reported 5 to 8 inches (127 to 203 mm) of rain in the area, and 7.1 inches (180.3 mm) at the Oklahoma City Airport have set a daily rainfall record. The massive rainfall has caused the city to issue a flood emergency warning for the first time in the history of Oklahoma City, according to spokeswoman Kristy Yager.
More than 10 homes near Grand Island were damaged and at least nine tornadoes were reported in Kansas. The Storm Prediction Center had warned that bad weather is on it's way to the Tornado Alley. "People just really need to stay weather aware, have a plan and understand that severe storms are possible across portions of the southern Plains almost daily through Saturday," meteorologist Jonathan Kurtz said.
