ST. LOUIS (AP) - Rivers and creeks are rising in parts of Missouri after storms brought heavy rain to the state.

Parts of central and eastern Missouri were especially hard hit by rainfall Wednesday night and continuing into Thursday. The National Weather Service reported 6 inches of rain in Troy, 5.5 inches in Rocheport and nearly 4 inches in the Hannibal area.

The downpour caused flash flooding in some areas. The North River at Palmyra, Hinkson Creek in Columbia and Moniteau Creek near Fayette were all experiencing minor flooding. The Current River at Old Monroe, just north of the St. Louis area, was rising and expected to reach 3 feet above flood stage by Saturday, but no significant problems are expected.
