JEFFERSON COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – Flash flooding throughout the day on Thursday caused inconveniences for many Jefferson County residents, but luckily, no major damage.
According to Jefferson County Director of Emergency Management Warren Robinson, after Thursday night’s round of storms, one tree fell onto a roadway, and several roads remained closed due to earlier flooding.
In terms of that earlier flooding, just off Highway M in Barnhart, a bridge leading to several homes on Chasteen Lane was partially washed away by floodwater. Now, residents can only walk across the bridge, until it’s fixed.
Just east of that damage, flooding on Dry Creek Road sent bicycles, a lawn mower, and other outdoor toys floating down the road. FOX 2 caught up with a family trying to salvage all of that, after the floodwater receded.
