Foot Of Rain Falls In Show Me State

CoCoRaHS observer MO-FSA-001 said it was the biggest rain they have ever witnessed -- with over 12" falling in 31 hours.

The gauge actually overflowed and they aren't sure how much data was lost.

This report comes from Adair County, near the town of Kirksville.

2-3 feet of water covering approximately 30 roads in and around Kirksville has prompted over a dozen water rescues.

Up to 4 feet of water has surrounded homes and covered highways in Ralls County near the town of Perry, where several large unoccupied campers were washed away by Lick Creek.

There are several flash flood warnings in effect today for central and northern Missouri.

The area hard hit by heavy rain is basically the same locations hit by floods earlier in the summer. (north and northwest of St. Louis)
