Heavy Downpours Cause Road Closures - Powerful Storms Possible Wednesday Night

We took this photo earlier this evening on Boeuf Lutheran Road.

Several roads have been closed due to low level crossings.  Locally, we know of the following roads that are closed: Boeuf Lutheran Road between Highway C and Gerding School Road, Hoemann Road along with Detmold Road.

Please drive slowly in low-lying areas and "Don't Drown - Turn Around" when you see water.
Just over a month on Mar. 13 after heavy down pours throughout the day, emergency crews responded to Detmold Road for a water rescue thanks to one driver’s failed attempt of crossing three feet of water left him stranded and sitting on top the roof of his vehicle.

According to the NWS today’s heavy rains have produced between 1.5 to as much as 3 inches of rain in north and northwestern areas of Franklin and northern areas of Gasconade counties.

We took this photo earlier this evening on Highway KK near Hoemeyer Lane.

Specifically areas along the Missouri River from western Gasconade county to the area of Highway 100 and 185 has seen nearly 2 inches as of 6:36 p.m.

The NWS is predicting the trend of severe storms and heavy rains to continue through Monday.  Tomorrow night and into Thursday there is potential for significant severe weather and possibly a severe weather outbreak with numerous severe thunderstorms capable of large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes.
