Flooding and Damage Reported Around SW Missouri

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Storms late Thursday night and early Friday morning pushed many rivers and streams from their banks around southern Missouri.  And high winds and a possible tornado have left behind damaged buildings and trees down in some areas.

Heavy rainfall from previous thunderstorms has  pushed east toward southeast Missouri, but flooding will likely continue through  much of the morning near creeks and   streams and low lying areas.

Runoff from this rain is causing flooding. Creeks, streams and low water crossings will be especially susceptible to the dangers of  flooding.
