Officials in Halstead are monitoring flood waters along the Little Arkansas River. 

City crews are checking on the levels every hour; the gate at Halstead Road is closed.

Several people were involved, manually pushing the gate closed then sandbagging the botton of it. The city began filling sandbags just in case they're needed. 

The river is expected to crest by 1:00 p.m. Friday. 

Both K-89 and Halstead Road are closed north of Halstead with water over the roadway.

Halstead is located northwest of Wichita in Harvey County.
