Storm causes road damage, boil order in parts of Camden County
CAMDEN COUNTY - Storms that swept through mid-Missouri Saturday damaged several roads and low water crossings in north Camden County, according to a press release. Others are impassible.
In the area of Bollinger Creek, 7-13 was impassible until Camden County Road and Bridge crews responded with equipment to remove the damaged asphalt and add temporary fill. The Camden County Sheriff's Office said drivers should still consider it a dangerous area to drive.
Dodds Camp Road was also inaccessible after the storm, even to crews trying to restore power to the area.
The bridge at Cup Tree Road in the northern most part of Camden County is completely damaged. The Sheriff's Office said it should not be used.
Also, Dawson Road in Camdenton behind Save-A-Lot was severely damaged in the storm. There is a boil order for that area.
The recent heavy rains also damaged a portion of Dawson Road in Camdenton. According to a city press release, barriers block the road in both directions. Drivers must not go around the barriers. They should find an alternate route.
Also in Camdenton, there was a water main break in the area of Bent Tree Lane and Forestway Drive. As of Sunday afternoon, these areas were without water and there is a boil advisory for the two affected roads.
As of Sunday afternoon, emergency crews were trying to repair roads that need immediate access. The Sheriff's Office advises drivers to not take a chance on driving over low water or severely damaged roads.
