Oklahoma hasn't been the only state to get large amounts of rainfall in the last week. Days of heavy rain in Missouri caused the water to rise dangerously in the Finely River near Fordland.

The strong current of the floodwaters knocked trees down, covered roads and resulted in debris floating down the river.

Crews had to put up barricade signs to keep traffic from driving into floodwaters.
