More rain saturates Cape Girardeau

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - Cape Girardeau braced for more flash floods as more rain saturated the community.

The city has been offering a limited supply of sandbags as well as a Red Cross shelter for flood victims at the Osage Center.

Residents have been warned to avoid roads that have standing water, something that Cape Girardeau Emergency Management Coordinator Mark Hasheider says can be a serious problem.

"You know, one that we continue to express to the general public is to not drive through flooded roads," Hasheider said.

Residents can contact the fire department for local road closings and the Missouri Department of Transportation’s website for an interactive map of highway and interstate closings.
