Widespread Flooding Soaks Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas

MIAMI, Okla. -- Rain has stopped falling in a water-logged region of the Plains, but rivers are still overflowing and streets are still flooded and many evacuees are still unable to return home.
Experts said the flooding may last for several more days. The Neosho River in northeastern Oklahoma crested at 29.2 feet at about 1 a.m. Wednesday. But one forecaster said it isn't expected to fall below its flood stage of 15 feet at Miami until Sunday.
More than two weeks of torrential rain has caused widespread flooding in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.
