Heavy rains continued to fall Friday afternoon in Columbia, bringing totals to more than 6 inches in parts of northeastern Boone County since Wednesday according to the National Weather Service. “There’s still quite a bit of rain in the area,” said Weather Service forecaster Doug Tilly. “Most of the rain is going to be isolated over the area through tonight, and the rain tomorrow shouldn’t be that heavy, but still, it’s more rain.”
