Roads remain flooded Wednesday


Roads across mid-Missouri remained flooded Wednesday morning after rain plagued the area Tuesday.

On Tuesday, emergency crews closed several roads including Strawn Road in west Columbia and Creasy Springs Road in north Columbia.

Missouri State Highway Patrol reminded drivers Tuesday not to drive over flooded roadways or around barricades because even a few inches of water can sweep away a vehicle.
