Torrential rains pushed several northeast Oklahoma rivers out of their banks yesterday, flooding streets, homes and businesses and forcing thousands of residents to flee rising water. It's been raining more than two weeks.
The Oklahoma Office of Emergency Management says 200 to 250 homes statewide have been damaged.
It's not much better in Kansas where President Bush has declared a major disaster for 17 flooded counties.
