The Columbia/Boone County’s Office of Emergency Management is urging those out celebrating Memorial Day today to use caution, especially when driving, after recent rains have flooded some area roads.

Residents are advised to pay attention to flash flood warnings that have been issued for the area, and to –  “turn around, don’t drown” rather than attempting to drive through flooded areas.

A list of flooded and closed roads is available from the  Columbia/Boone County Office of Emergency Management.

Strong to severe storms are possible in the area through Friday.
