 COLUMBIA — With numerous roads in the area impassable Thursday morning, the threat of additional rain Thursday afternoon and evening has led to additional flood advisories from the National Weather Service.

A flood warning for small streams in Boone, Callaway, Cole and Moniteau counties remains in effect until 5:15 p.m. Thursday. In addition, a flash flood watch was expanded Thursday morning to include Boone and the three other counties. The watch was posted until 7 p.m. Thursday.

"The primary threat for heavy rainfall will extend into this afternoon as additional thunderstorms move in from the west," a statement issued Thursday morning from Weather Service in St. Louis said.
