KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say some people had to be rescued from their vehicles after flash flooding hit southeast Missouri, while possible tornadoes left wind damage in the northwest corner of the state.

The National Weather Service says 3 inches of rain fell in an hour Sunday afternoon around Fremont in Carter County, catching some people in their vehicles on U.S. 60. The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a few people also had to be evacuated from their homes in the region. No serious injuries were reported.

The highway was closed for about three hours and some county roads are underwater.

The weather service says it received reports of possible tornadoes Sunday evening in Nodaway, Buchanan and Mercer counties. The storms left trees and power lines down, with damage to some outbuildings.
