KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Heavy rains have pushed waterways out of their banks causing flash flooding around Missouri.

The National Weather Service said flash flooding was reported in central, southern and eastern Missouri, and more rain’s expected through early Monday. The weather service also issued a flood warning for McDonald County in southwest Missouri until Sunday evening.

Tom Waters, chairman of the Missouri Levee and Drainage District Association, said in an email Sunday that all the recent rain will cause the Missouri River to rise quickly over the next few days, when the river is expected to crest above flood stage at several locations.

No injuries have been reported, but KRCG reports crews were searching Sunday for a man whose vehicle was found swept up in a low water crossing in Fulton.
