NODAWAY COUNTY, Mo. -- Storms rolled through northern Missouri Tuesday night. The Missouri Highway Patrol had to rescue motorists on a stretch of road near I-29 between St. Joseph and Mound City due to flood waters.

Crews said rescues started around 12:45 a.m. and last until about 7 a.m. Wednesday. Rescue workers used a boat to retrieve people who were stranded on the roof of their vehicles, some for an hour. No one was seriously injured in the flooding.

In Nodaway County high winds damaged a school, blowing shingles into a nearby cornfield that was flattened in some areas. FOX 4's Katie Ferrell reports more of the damage in the video below.
