JEROME, Mo. (KSDK) - More heavy rain is in the forecast Thursday night for the same parts of Missouri where flooding has already turned deadly.
One of those areas keeping a close on the radar is the community of Jerome in Phelps County.
NewsChannel 5 meteorologists say Phelps County received 10 inches of rain on Wednesday, and another 1.5 inches on Thursday. All of that water caused flash flooding.
On Wednesday the Gasconade River was at a record level of 32 feet. It fell overnight and was down to around five feet on Thursday, but rain expected overnight into Friday could make it get worse.
Many people in the area had to move their belongings and vehicles to higher ground.
The sheriff says once the water subsides crews will be able to get back into the town and assess all of the damage.
