TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The National Weather Service in Tucson has extended the small stream flood warning for central Pima County.

At around 2:45 a.m. Wednesday, the Vamori Wash remained above the flood stage. It is slowly dropping, according to the NWS, but water levels have only dropped to 9.7 feet.
