Crews search for woman after her home is swept away by flood waters


Officials are still searching for an Anderson woman who was swept away by flood waters while inside a home.

The McDonald County Sheriff’s Office says a home was pulled into Beaver Branch near Jackson Avenue late Sunday.

A middle-aged woman was inside the home and remains missing, after crews searched along the creek until nightfall.

Four State Search and Rescue crews are back on scene Monday morning continuing the search with two K9’s.

Two more K9’s are traveling from Columbia authorities now to assist.

Authorities say they will expand the search if the woman is not found soon, with the help of additional local agencies.
