This will ensure State resources are available for the extreme weather. Governor Greitens released the following statement Saturday, “Thank you to our first responders for their dedication and hard work keeping Missouri families safe and protecting property. Our highly skilled emergency teams are already saving lives and implementing their coordinated response plans to ensure that the right resources are in the areas where they are most needed. Please stay safe and stay away from rising water.” “With several roads in southern Missouri closed due to high water, and water rescues occurring in the southwest portion of the state, the State Emergency Operations Center has been activated to respond to this flooding.” Department of Public Safety Director Drew Juden said. “We have been tracking the rain and flooding throughout the week and we are in close coordination with the Governor, state and local agencies, and response partners to ensure we are prepared to respond to this flooding.” The area is still expecting more rain through Saturday night, as the area remains under a Flash Flood Warning.   To see current road closures, click here, to go to the MoDOT map.
