MCDONALD COUNTY, MO --- More heavy rainfall is causing flooding in extreme southwest Missouri, where several water rescues were carried out overnight.

The McDonald County Emergency Management office says a total of ten people, including 6 children, were rescued in Anderson, Missouri after 1:00 am, after rapidly rising water stranded people in their homes. No injuries were reported.

Several cars were also stranded on Highway 59 in Goodman, when high water collected under a railroad underpass. Water rescues were also needed to get people safely from that area.

The National Weather Service says the heaviest rain fell from Goodman to Powell, Missouri, where radar estimates 2-3 inches of rain fell in a 1-2 hour period.

Among the low water crossings affected are Highway 76 3 miles west of Anderson and Highway 90 at Little Sugar Creek near Jane.
