Updated at 4:50 p.m. - More than a dozen people have died as a result of historic flooding throughout Missouri. And the state isn’t out of the wood just yet.
In a briefing with local officials in Franklin County, Gov. Jay Nixon said that 14 people have died as a result of flooding. Most of the deaths occurred after people tried to drive through floodwater.
“If we could say anything over and over and over – it’s don’t drive into water,” Nixon said.
