LINCOLN COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – Homeowners in Lincoln County were dealing with more flooding as new rains caused the water to soak yards and homes. It was also a common sight to see road blocks as a Sunday morning rain added to an already saturated area. All homeowners like Danielle Hawkins could do is watch as the waters took over.

"There was a good bit of rainfall and heavy downpours. Then we looked outside and saw our backyard was flooded within 10 minutes it rose. We didn't think much at first then when it took over and we freaked out. We started to take stuff out of the basement." said Hawkins

Multiple roads in Hawk Point and Troy were also blocked and impassable.
