Water reported over some roads

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - All the snow and ice we've had is starting to melt, and that is causing flooding in some areas.

Missouri

Sikeston roads are pretty slushy and there's even standing water in some intersections.

Captain Jim McMillian with Sikeston DPS urges people to stay at home and not drive on the slick roads.

He says drivers are getting stuck either in the slushy roads or even in some cases in flooded areas.
