Heavy rains drench northern Missouri
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Some roads are flooded by torrential rain in parts of northern Missouri, with one report of more than seven inches of rain in four hours.
The National Weather Service Wednesday cited reports of several feet of water on highways in Daviess County, and authorities report similar road flooding in Linn and Macon counties. A highway crew reported six feet of water on a road south of Jameson.
In Linn County, Emergency Director Jamie Stallo said six homes were evacuated in and around the town of Linneus (LIN'-ee-uhs), 115 miles northeast of Kansas City. Nearly 8.5 inches of rain fell in the town since 8 a.m. Tuesday, more than seven inches of that in four hours early Wednesday.
Stallo said no injuries were reported, and the floodwaters are beginning to recede.
