Eleven people are dead and six remain missing after an amphibious duck boat with tourists on board sank in a heavy storm near Branson, Missouri on Thursday.

Rescue personnel work after an amphibious "duck boat" capsized and sank, at Table Rock Lake near Branson, Stone County, Missouri on Friday in this still image obtained from a video on social media. Divers are still searching for possible victims.

"Right now, it's a recovery effort", Parson said.

Mr Rader said an off-duty sheriff's deputy working security helped rescue people.

Video of the incident showed the hull of the vessel submerging into choppy waters. The majority of those were in Iowa, with other locations also being battered by large hail and strong straight-line winds as well.

The company Ripley Entertainment owns the capsized boat, having added Branson's "Ride the Ducks" attraction to its roster past year.

"If there are kids on there, those poor babies". The names of those who were killed have not been released.

The local branch of the Cox Medical Center said two people were in critical condition, while the sheriff added several people had made it to shore.

Rader at least 8 people died, but emergency agencies are still performing a search and rescue operation.

The National Transportation Safety Board said investigators will arrive on the scene Friday morning. Pattison said he didn't know when the boat left the dock.

There were numerous reports of damage throughout the county, including trees down and structural damage, said CNN meteorologist Taylor Ward.

Winds as high as 60 miles per hour were reported in the area at the time of the accident.

"It's going to be all night", Radar said.

When the storm seemed imminent he had rushed to the lake to urge guests and boats to evacuate, as rough waves began slamming into his resort pier.

Kevan Moniri, who was on the scooter with Warmuth, recalls seeing the duck boat accelerate behind them when a light turned green, then realizing the driver did not see them.

"Were trying to dive for more missing people", he said.

"We have a clear line of sight to both across the water", Zerby said.

"So all of the staff, all of the waiters, waitresses that may be on our showboat actually grabbed life jackets, AEDs, were running up and down the aisles helping as much as they could", he said, referring to automated external defibrillators.

"People are supposed to be able to go out for an outing and have a good time". He said it is unknown how many individuals are still in the water.

Duck amphibious vehicles are used on tourist sightseeing tours around the world and have been involved in a number of fatal accidents in the past two decades.

The incident occurred at Table Rock Lake in Stone County, Missouri, and involved the "Ride the Ducks" vessel.

"Words can not convey how profoundly our hearts are breaking", the company said.
