WASHINGTON, Mo. (AP) - A second wave of violent weather has been rolling through eastern Missouri, with scattered reports of tornado sightings.

The public reported a tornado shortly after 7 p.m. Thursday near the town of Washington, but Franklin County emergency management director Abraham Cook says there were no immediate reports of damage or injury.

A tornado touched down briefly around 5:30 a.m. Thursday in the St. Louis suburb of University City.

In east-central Missouri, a member of the public reported a tornado Thursday evening near the Osage County town of Rich Fountain. County emergency management director Andrea Rice said the sighting was unconfirmed and she was unaware of any damage.

Parts of Missouri had hail and more than 6 inches of rain in a 24-hour period, prompting flash flooding and water rescues in several locations.
