SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Several Missouri communities are experiencing minor to moderate flooding after a spring storm swept through the state.

Flood warnings are in effect Wednesday for several communities, largely in the western part of the state. Counties affected include Andrew, Buchanan, Clay, Clinton, DeKalb, Holt, Jackson and Platte counties.

The warnings come as the southwest part of the state is cleaning up from strong winds. The National Weather Service is reporting snapped limbs in Christian and Taney counties and toppled power poles in Stone County. Winds blew a roof off a house in Jasper County and damaged a brick structure in Barton County.

Wind gusts of more than 60 mph were reported in Vernon and St. Clair counties. Half-inch size hail also was reported in Franklin County in eastern Missouri.
