FORDLAND, Mo. — A water rescue team in Webster County, Missouri, was still searching for a woman missing Friday after her vehicle was swept away by floodwaters Thursday night.
According to reports from NBC affiliate KY3, fire and rescue crews searched through the night for the woman after flood waters rose on the Finley River.
The Logan-Rogersville Fire Protection District responded to help with the water rescue at the river crossing on Route Z just south of Fordland. Fordland is about 25 miles east of Springfield.
Two people, one man and one woman, were pulled from the water. Another woman is still missing. The man that was rescued was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the search was stopped late in the night until conditions could improve but started again Friday morning.
Officials are putting boats in the water and have people on the roads nearby to assist with a rescue or recovery.
Flooding has been limited in the St. Louis area. Most of our area has seen the flood watch expire. The morning's break in the rain allowed for some recovery time ahead of additional rainfall this afternoon and evening. Areas southeast are still involved in the flood watch as a result of 1-2 inches of additional rainfall expected.
Friday afternoon, showers and a few thunderstorms will develop and spread through the area. The heavier rain is still expected south of the metro area, but this will still cover most of our area.
