Miami (Rachel Harper/Democrat-News)

Gators and other all-terrain vehicles were used the second week of May to haul sandbags to different points on the levees in Miami. (Rachel Harper/Democrat-News)

From left, David Copeland, who grows soybeans and corn in the Miami bottoms along the Missouri River, packs the sandbags down while Alex Copeland and Sean Scott place the temporary wall of sandbags in a low spot on the levee.

Carroll County had several spots in the primary levee that broke along with a couple in the secondary levee. Homes surrounded by flood water south of Norborne were built on high spots in the ground and so far have received minor damage. (Rachel Harper/Democrat-News)

The rain gauge on the top of this post was barely visible when the water got out on Wednesday, May 15. As you can see the water has been going down because this photo was taken on Sunday, May 13. However, under this rain guage is a mailbox. (Carroll County) (Rachel Harper/Democrat-News)

This secondary levee, located directly south of Norborne, broke and let a lot of water out quickly. To the left of the levee, the water washed a rather large whole. Roger Harper said the depth finder on the boat said it was 56 feet deep, so when the water goes down it will be at least 40 feet deep. (Carroll County) (Rachel Harper/Democrat-News)
