According to a press release issued by Miller County 911 Dispatch director Michael Arnold, all low lying areas on the banks of the Osage River including the cities of Bagnell and Tuscumbia, were advised to seek higher ground as Ameren Missouri opened the spill gates at Bagnell Dam late Wednesday morning. Arnold said opening the dam’s floodgates will cause waters to rise three feet per hour in these low lying areas on the Osage River.
