COLUMBIA — The National Weather Service is predicting more storms in Boone County.
Boone County is under a flash flood watch until 7 p.m. Saturday for parts of central and northeast Missouri, and the weather service predicted thunderstorms.
The next round of storms could produce several inches of rain, as well as a “moderate risk for severe storms,” which could produce large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes, the weather service said in an advisory Saturday morning.
Heavy rain last night left one vehicle stuck in water at the intersection of Carter Lane and Providence.
Battalion Chief Steven Sapp, a spokesman for the Columbia Fire Department, said drivers should be cautious when thinking about driving on the roads.
He said those with SUVs and pickup trucks might think their vehicles can cross water-covered roadways, but only a few inches of water can cause a vehicle to float.
“Turn around and don’t drown,” Sapp said. “It’s that simple.”
