The excessive rainfall resulted in flooding of many county roads and state highways in addition to low water crossings. Many streams and larger rivers were also flooded.

In addition...wind gusts of 30 to 50 mph accompanied the heavy rainfall. The wind downed numerous trees and resulted in scattered power outages across southern Missouri.
