ROGERSVILLE, Mo. - The rain has let up, but the danger from flooding remains in many rural areas.
At least a dozen roads in eastern Greene County are still underwater. The westbound lanes of U.S. 60 are also submerged between Springfield and Route 125. Westbound traffic has been diverted to one of the eastbound lanes, resulting in head-to-head traffic for about one mile.
Water rescues have also continued as drivers get stuck trying to cross flooded roads.
So far, all submerged drivers have been pulled to safety. However, they don't always make it out with their cars.
"Before you pull in there, [ask yoursefl] what is the financial impact going to be if I ruin my car? Is it $5,000, $10,000? How am I going to be without a car to get to work? There are lots of risks other than life threatening risks," explained Richard Stirts, Logan-Rogersville Fire Chief.
Authorities say it could be several weeks before some of the low-water crossings are completely dry again.
