Y CITY, Ark. - Flash flooding has killed at least two people in Arkansas, including a sheriff who ventured out in bad weather with a game warden to check on residents in a home threatened by high water.

State officials say the game warden and two people from the home in Y City were missing.

Searchers found the boat that Sheriff Cody Carpenter and the warden took onto Mill Creek near the Oklahoma border.

A woman's body was found in a car.

Her death, which was the third reported from storms overnight, was attributed to the flooding but details weren't immediately offered.

Forecasters are warning of more bad weather today in much of the Southern Plains and Ozarks.
