Episode Narrative A low pressure center that stalled over northeast Colorado and the associated warm front across northern Kansas resulted in showers and thunderstorms into southwest Nebraska May 23, 2008. The persistent southeast surface wind flow provided deep moisture across southwest Nebraska that fueled training thunderstorms resulting in increased runoff from saturated ground and flash flooding. In addition, thunderstorms developing in an unstable atmosphere produced isolated large hail.
Event Narrative Heavy rain from thunderstorms caused flash flooding to roads on the west side of Chappell and to roads near the fairgrounds. Lodgepole Creek flowed out of its banks and caused lowland flooding.
