Miller County authorities now have a new way to conduct DWI investigations. The new method makes it much easier for officers to attain search warrants when administering blood draws from suspected drivers.

Miller County Emergency Management Director Barlow Biggers says the county hasn’t seen Osage River flooding like this in 30 years.

As of 11:00am Wednesday, Biggers says 30 county roads and three highways had been closed or are under water. He says the fire department had also already had to respond to three swift water rescues, which were all successful.
