More heavy rain moved through the area overnight prompting Flood Warnings for the Branson Lakes Region. With the rain moving out of the area, the Flood Warning has been replaced by a Flood Advisory for the Lakes Region until 10:30.
The Advisory does include the Branson area including Stone and Taney Counties as well as Christian, Douglas, and Ozark in the region.
Reports to the National Weather Service in Springfield Monday indicated several Low Water Crossings were closed due to rising water levels including Flat Creek in Barry County and Possum Walk Creek in Ozark County near the Missouri-Arkansas Boarder. Thunderstorms were also part of the rain which included reports of Hail in Douglas County.
A break in the rain is expected today with more rain expected to enter the Lakes Region early Wednesday morning.
