GAINESVILLE — Heavy rain and high winds swept across southern Missouri on Wednesday, causing road flooding and power outages.
Some of the outages reported Wednesday are in northern Pemiscot County, where residents are still recovering from last week's severe ice storm.
The Missouri Department of Transportation said several rural highways east of Springfield are closed. There are no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
MoDOT said roads in Wright, Ozark, Howell, Douglas and Texas counties are closed. Officials say three low-lying bridges in Ozark County are closed but are expected to open later Wednesday.
The National Weather Service also issued flood warnings for several small streams across the region.
