      Governor Nixon in Waynesville Wednesday

      Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon will be in flood-damaged Waynesville on Wednesday to discuss emergency response efforts.

      Updated Wednesday, August 7 at 7:45 a.m.

      Threats of further flooding prompted Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to postpone a trip to flood-damaged Waynesville Wednesday that had been planned to discuss emergency response efforts.

      The governor's office announced in a news release that the event was postponed because state and local emergency management workers are responding to continued dangerous flooding in south-central Missouri.

      Rain was falling again Wednesday morning in much of south-central Missouri.

      A child was killed and several homes and businesses damaged after heavy rain Monday night and Tuesday morning soaked Waynesville, a south-central Missouri town near Fort Leonard Wood. A search resumed Wednesday for a woman who is believed to be the child's mother.
