The National Weather Service office in Springfield received several reports of flooded roads and intersections in several cities across the Ozarks, including Mount Vernon, Pierce City, Marshfield, Republic and Battlefield.

WEST PLAINS, Mo. -- The Howell County coroner finally received autopsy results on a 9-month-old baby who died last Oct. 16.  Investigators found Electra Elizabeth Werner had a genetic disease since birth that caused her bones to be fragile, but could find no evidence that she died from abuse or neglect. Elizabeth's family lives at Peace Valley, about 10 miles from West Plains.  The baby died at the hospital in West Plains, triggering an investigation by the sheriff's department.  The unexplained deaths of children are routinely investigated in Missouri, as mandated by state law.  Coroner Tim Cherry says the baby's disease is called “ osteogenesis imperfecta , which can cause a shortened lifespan due to various mechanisms.” The autopsy was done by medical examiners at University Hospitals in Columbia.
