COLUMBIA — With more storms forecast to move into mid-Missouri early Thursday evening, Boone County was under a tornado watch, a flood warning and a flash-flood warning.

At 4:25 p.m., National Weather Service radar showed thunderstorms with heavy rain approaching from the west with an additional 1 to 2 inches possible.

"With these torrential downpours falling on top of already saturated ground, runoff from this excessive rainfall will cause flash flooding," the weather service advised.

The flash-flood warning extends to 10:30 p.m. Thursday, the tornado watch goes until midnight Thursday, and the general flood warning continues until 1 p.m. Friday.
