Residents back in homes after flooding recedes from Bull Creek in southwest Missouri


BULL CREEK VILLAGE, Missouri — Heavy rain recently pushed waterways in southwest Missouri out of their banks, briefly forcing scores of residents from their homes.

Andy Foster of the National Weather Service told The Springfield News-Leader (http://sgfnow.co/1Cug83u ) that the heaviest rain late Thursday and early Friday was along Highway 60. Flood warnings were issued for several area counties.

Chris Berndt, emergency manager for Taney County, said crews were called to Bull Creek Village early Friday to help about 150 people out of their homes. He said the nearby Bull Creek was rising fast from all the recent rain but no injuries or rescues were required. Berndt says the residents started returning to their homes later Friday morning.

The weather service says the rain is expected to end Friday, and remain clear through the weekend.
