FALLS CITY, Neb. (AP) - Heavy rainfall has accumulated in farm fields and covered streets in much of southeast Nebraska, and more rain is in the forecast.

The National Weather Service says showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue Thursday morning and return Thursday night and overnight.

A flood warning covering Johnson, Pawnee and Richardson counties says there have been reports of more than 5 inches of rain in some spots over the past 24 hours.

The Falls City Airport in Richardson County reported just under 4 inches, and county emergency manager Brian Dixon said residents have been dealing with surface flooding but no major damage.

Dixon says local tributaries that empty into the Missouri River have kept to their banks, but he worries that could change with more rain.
