Authorities in south-central Missouri say at least seven people have died due to flooding.

Pulaski County Sheriff Ronald Long said Sunday that six people died in two separate overnight incidents when two cars drove into flooded roadways.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol told KYTV that authorities recovered the body of a driver from a creek in Greene County in southwest Missouri on Sunday.

Also in the southwest part of the state, Barry County emergency officials say crews rescued people from 29 vehicles stranded by rising waters, and several other people had to be evacuated from homes.

The National Weather Service issued flash flood warnings Sunday for much of Missouri, where three to six inches of rain fell during the weekend, and up to four inches more of rain was expected through Monday.
