Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has declared a state of emergency in response to heavy rain and flooding, with more expected as the remnants of Tropical Storm Bill pass through the state through tomorrow.
The declaration means state emergency management personnel and the Highway Patrol will assist local communities in flood response.
Missouri has already seen the closure of many roads and some flash flooding, and agencies are warning that more could occur particularly on the state’s smaller rivers.
