Flood waters had receded from 11th Street and County Farm Road by 9 a.m. Thursday, though water was still streaming out of all the manholes on the street. Kyle Troutman/editor@cassville-democrat.com
The worst flooding in Cassville occurred on Sale Barn Road near Designs by Debbie. At 9:30 a.m., that channel was still rushing over the roadway. Kyle Troutman/editor@cassville-democrat.com
Flooding over Sale Barn Road streamed toward the Cassville City Park, but did not break its banks much as it passed the ballfields and Greenway toward Rocky Edmondson Park, where it did flood slightly. Kyle Troutman/editor@cassville-democrat.com

  • Thanks to the improvements made to Flatt Creek we are not seeing the flooding issues repeat themselves as in years past. Bravo.
