Officials warn of severe weather ahead of expected storms in Mid-Missouri


Boone County officials are warning residents of ways to stay safe during severe weather in Mid-Missouri.

The Boone County Fire Protection District posted to their Facebook page Saturday, advising residents to have multiple ways to check weather conditions.

The warning comes as storms are expected to roll through Mid-Missouri Saturday, with 1-2 inches of rain expected.

With these storms, flooding remains the biggest concern.

In Boone County, roads prone to flooding include:

  • Strawn road (and that entire park)
  • Creasy springs
  • Old Plank
  • Gillespie Bridge
  • Orr Road
  • Blackfoot Road

The MODOT Traveler's Map is another tool residents can utilize, to check for flooded or closed roadways across the state.
