Boone County is expected to be under a flash flood watch from Tuesday evening through Wednesday afternoon.

The National Weather Service forecasts the potential for periods of heavy rain beginning Tuesday evening from thunderstorms associated with a slow-moving cold front making its way across the region.

The flash-flood watch included much of central Missouri. The watch extended north to the Iowa line and into Kansas to the west.

Now the question should be how many citizens will not actually pay attention to these alerts and drive into those flooded areas then cry via their cell phones to be rescued.
