A storm that dumped up to 10 inches of rain left much of northern Missouri facing low-level flooding and cleaning up mostly minor damage caused by tornadoes and high winds.
The National Weather Service issued a flood warning at along the Missouri River, including in Buchanan, Clay, Platte, Jackson and Ray counties.
The National Weather Service says 10 inches of rain was reported in Sullivan County near Browning early Wednesday, with 9 inches in Kirksville.
Rainfall reports between 5 and 8 inches were common across northern Missouri, with many streets closed by flooding. A short section of Interstate 29 near Mound City was closed early Wednesday while stranded cars were removed.

In the Kansas City area, rainfall totals were not as severe. Rainfall amounts for the 24-hour period ending at 7 a.m. Wednesday ranged from just over 1/10 of an inch at New Century AirCenter near Gardner to 9/10 of an inch at Kansas City International Airport.
There was scattered storm damage across the metropolitan area, including a large tree that was blown onto a car in Prairie Village.
Five possible tornadoes were reported in northwest Missouri late Tuesday. Reports generally were of roof damage and trees down. Nodaway Holt High School in Grand was closed Wednesday after a roof was damaged.
Showers and thunderstorms are expected to move out of the area Wednesday, giving way to dramatically cooler temperatures for the rest of the week and the weekend.
Highs in the Kansas City area are expected to be in the 50s and 60s, with lows in the 40s and 50s.
Lows on Saturday morning could fall into the 30s north of U.S. 36 near St. Joseph and in the lower 40s along and south of Interstate 70.
