Sage Clunn and friends water rescued from dorm rooftop

Sage Clunn, the eldest son of legendary Bassmaster pro Rick Clunn, attends college in West Plains, Mo., and he and numerous fellow students had to be rescued from the rooftop of his dorm.

Due to an incredible influx of rain runoff and flooding, thanks to the same system that has delayed the final day of the Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Elite at Ross Barnett, the college dorm's lower levels were submerged forcing the students to seek refuge on the building's roof.

The local fire department had to use one of the ladder trucks to access their perch, and began to take them off one by one--including a student in a wheelchair.

Everyone's safe and sound as the local water levels continue to rise. Keep this part of the country in your thoughts and prayers as devastating flash floods are very likely with this saturating storm system.

If you live in the easterly path of this storm, keep your eyes on the sky.
