ARCADIA, Fla. A flood warning has been extended for areas of DeSoto County Saturday, according to the National Weather Service of Tampa.

The warning will be in effect until 12 p.m. Sunday for the Horse Creek and until 6 p.m. Wednesday for the Peace River, the weather service said.

Rainfall will lead to increased water levels in rivers already experiencing flooding, the weather service said.
