JOPLIN METRO AREA — More rain falling overnight causing more flooding and road closings. Don’t forget moving a barrier or driving around one could get you a ticket.
Submitted video from a longtime tipster of the Carthage storm drains which mostly sit empty, 7:45 a.m. Monday morning they are a raging river. “I haven’t seen them like this in 10 years.”
Seneca Area Fire Protection District post a reminder just before 8:00 a.m. stating, “Hwy CC south of Racine is still closed. Moving barricades is a dangerous thing. 86 south of Redings Mill has just been closed by MoDot this morning due to water. Find an alternative route.”
“After a soggy weekend, look out for flooded roadways this morning in some areas. If you encounter a barricade, turn around! Please don’t drive around or move them. Thank you!” — MoDOT SWMO
