Minor flooding in Missouri; flash floods a concern

Monday, June 9, 2014 | 2:59 p.m. CDT

ST. LOUIS — Recent rains have pushed rivers above flood stage at some locations in Missouri, while flash floods are possible in other areas.

Minor flooding was occurring Monday along portions of the Mississippi River north of St. Louis, but no major damage was reported.

The worst of the flooding was along the Grand River in north-central Missouri. The river was more than 8 feet above technical flood stage at the small town of Sumner. Several rural roads and Highway 139 were under water.

Much of southern Missouri was under a flash flood warning on Monday because of recent rains and the chance of thunderstorms Monday night.
