We have just been deluged with rain lately. It has been raining almost steady for 2 days. This is north of town at highways 54 and 69 looking south towards town.
This is 54 and 69 highways in town not to far north and west of us.
This is 3rd street and 69 highway just a few blocks down the hill from us.
This is the marmaton river well over it's bank. it is expected to be 40 feet above normal by tonight.
North of town. The people were taking things from their house. I wouldn't live there for all the money in the world!
From highway 54 at 69 looking towards town.
Here are the people saving what they can.
Just a note on us. We are looking at a house tomorrow in my hometown a short distance away. The landlord made some very mean remarks and comments yesterday and we have had enough! He put tarps on the roof which slowed the leaks. We also have new leaks in the kitchen and back bedroom. We can't even turn on the bathroom light as it is leaking water through it. Thanks to a very dear friend who is loaning us 300 dollars, a move is possible with the right house. I know the house and the folks who own it so we have high hopes. It is 2oo dollars less than this place and Jack will have a workshop to putter in. We also have another house we can look at that is about the same price. So keep us in your prayers!
