Additional rain causes flood warning


The Oak Grove Lane low water crossing south of state Route MM and west of Sedalia was covered by flood water late Wednesday morning. Continuous rain that soon became a downpour caused a river flood warning to be issued by the National Weather Service for Pettis County until Friday.


Cars traveling on west U.S. Highway 50 in Sedalia moved cautiously through a late morning downpour Wednesday. Due to recent rains and the saturated ground, rain soon began to quickly collect in culverts, fields and roadways.


A bridge on Wimer Road, west of state Route 127 and north of La Monte, remains closed after being washed out last week due to flooding. The bridge showed additional sinking and cracking on Wednesday after the last two days of additional and continuous rain. Pettis County Presiding Commissioner David Dick said the bridge would remain closed indefinitely.


Water had begun to rise again at a one-way bridge on state Route M, near Wort Road, southeast of Sedalia on Wednesday. “It’s all starting to add up,” Sedalia-Pettis County Emergency Management Agency Director David Clippert said by phone. “I’m hoping that after (Wednesday) … we may have a few days to dry out.”
