People in Missouri and other central states are preparing for more rain and possible flooding after a week of intermittent downpours dumped as much as 15 inches in some locations.

The National Weather Service predicts heavy rainfall and says there's a flood risk through early Saturday across southeast Kansas and southern Missouri. More rain is expected into next week.

Authorities in southwest Missouri say a woman who died Thursday morning while attempting to drive across a flooded creek near the town of Jane was 69-year-old Helen Pendergraft of Noel.
