Captain Lee Ann Kenley, commanding officer of Troop I, wants to remind everyone that flash flooding caused by heavy spring rains is common on Missouri’s many creeks and rivers. If you come to a low spot in the road covered with running water, do not try to cross it. Even a few inches of fast moving water can sweep a motor vehicle into the creek or river. If water rises quickly around your vehicle, abandon it for higher ground. Always heed signs that warn of flash flooding and if necessary, take the extra time to use a detour. Don’t take unnecessary chances risking your life or the lives of loved ones.
