Highway 60 in northern Neosho is completely impassable. Flooding in the Keeling Flats area has floated off unattached Burlington Northern rail cars from a nearby track.

Neosho Police and Burlington Northern personnel were on scene to monitor the situation. It has been confirmed the cars were not transporting any hazardous materials.

An officer on-site said Burlington Northern will have a third-party contractor remove the cars.
