Heavy overnight rains in mid-Missouri created hazardous conditions for drivers in low-lying areas Tuesday morning. At least one driver had to be rescued from the roof of a vehicle.
According to the Columbia Fire Department, units from Columbia and the Boone County Fire Protection District responded at about 12:30 Monday morning to Millcreek and Highway KK for a water rescue.
They found a car in high moving water with the driver stranded on top of the car. A rescue boat was deployed and the driver rescued within four minutes.
The Columbia Fire Department urges people not to drive through water that is over the roadway.
