ST. LOUIS (AP) - A southwest Missouri woman is dead after another round of torrential downpours caused flash flooding.
McDonald County emergency management director Greg Sweeten says the woman died early Thursday when her car was swept off Missouri Route 90 near the town of Jane, Mo. Sweeten says normally-dry Brush Creek came up suddenly.
The National Weather Service says parts of southwest Missouri got 10 inches of rain overnight. The town of Hollister was especially hard hit, with about 100 buildings damaged. More than two dozen people had to be rescued from homes, mostly mobile homes, in Hollister, which is near Branson in Taney County.
The weather service says more heavy rain is likely for southern Missouri in the coming days.
