Predicting the warning and pre-warning needs of Wildcat Creek was a topic examined by the local Wilcat Creek working Group Thursday evening. Co-Chair Rich Jankovich tells KMAN the meetings continue to raise interest by members of the public, with a large crowd turning out.
Jankovich adds work has begun on creek measurements with measuring gauges at Scenic Drive and Seth Child Bridge in place and being calibrated right now. He says between the Corps of Engineers and National Weather service, mapping has begun on some of the predictability efforts.
Jankovich looks forward to the system, which he says will help more than just the Manhattan area.
