      river rising southwest of Emporia, Kan., U.S., and flowing south and southeast past Neodesha, Independence, and Coffeyville and into Oklahoma to join the Arkansas River 5 miles (8 km) northeast of Muskogee, after a course of 350 miles (560 km). There are flood-control reservoirs near Toronto and Neodesha, Kan., and one near Oologah, Okla.
