rain-heavyOMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for parts of Nebraska and Iowa along the Missouri River, and storms that dumped nearly 7 inches of rain on parts of Omaha haven’t helped.

The National Weather Service says 6.83 inches of rain fell at the Millard Airport in Omaha from Friday night to about 7 a.m. Saturday — and more could be on the way.

The storms flooded low-lying Omaha streets and forced a College World Series game between Mississippi and Virginia to be postponed.

The weather service says there is a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms for the area on Sunday and a 50 percent chance on Monday.
