CLINTON COUNTY, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say one person died and two other people were rescued after their vehicle got stuck in floodwaters in northwest Missouri.

The Clinton County Sheriff’s office said the people were rescued from the vehicle Saturday as flooding prompted numerous road closures across the state. Their names were not immediately released.

The state Transportation Department on Sunday reported dozens of road closures across central Missouri between St. Louis and Kansas City.

The National Weather Service warned that lingering thunderstorms across the state could create additional flooding over the next several days. A flood warning remains in effect across a large section of central Missouri.
