BRANSON, MO (AP) – Authorities in Missouri say two Arkansans are confirmed dead and a third remains missing following flash flooding during the long holiday weekend.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that all three Arkansans were in a vehicle that became caught in flooding during a powerful storm that hit Arkansas, Missouri and Tennessee on Saturday night.

Police in Branson say the flooding killed 37-year-old Antonio Finley and 17-year-old Kaliea Munn, both of Nashville, Arkansas.  Authorities identified the missing woman as 31-year-old Whitney McDonald, also of Nashville. Finley, Munn and McDonald were in Branson for an annual youth basketball tournament.

Police say two other passengers in the car escaped as it was swept away at 9:20 p.m. Saturday.

Meteorologists say up to 5 inches of rain fell over Branson within a two-hour spa
