Flooding in Marble Hill

BOLLINGER COUNTY, Mo. - Emergency crews in Bollinger County stayed busy all day. Most of the calls dealt with rescue missions, but one involved a search and recovery. Deputy Sheriff Leo McElrath tells Heartland News a man's car got swept off Highway 34 near Woodland School, and both disappeared.

In Marble Hill, waters quickly rose from the Crooked Creek. It separates the two main parts of town. Highway 34 and 51 both were closed because of flooding.

Sharon Burton couldn't enjoy her birthday because she can't even get home, so she's stayed with family Tuesday night.

"I drove into work this morning and barely made it over a little bridge near my house, but when I went home a few hours later to get an overnight bag, I couldn't make it across even in my 3/4 ton truck," Burton said.

Emergency crews want to remind people to stay put if at all possible.  While Crooked Creek is known for flooding after heavy rains, City Administrator Gary Shrum says it's not been this bad in at least 20 years.
