Texas County is under a flash flood warning.

The Licking Fire Department was called at 11 a.m. Wednesday to a report of a vehicle stuck in high water with two occupants.

Authorities said two persons made it to safety on Robertson Drive, southeast of Licking. It was west of Cameron Road.

Texas County is under a flash flood watch until Thursday morning, the National Weather Service said. As of 6 p.m. Wednesday, there were no reports of closed roads in the county.

Fort Leonard Wood said some post roads and low-water crossings have been  impacted or closed, causing impact on normal operations.

“In hilly terrain, there are hundreds of low-water crossings which are potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do no not attempt to travel across flood roads,” a National Weather Service statement said. “Do not attempt to travel across flooded roads, find alternative roads. It only takes a few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.”
