In a part of the country that has been dealing with storm after storm this year, this latest rash of weather is hammering an already exhausted region.

Several states saw more than three inches of rain Tuesday May 22, and remain under flood warnings Wednesday.

This includes parts of Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri, areas that are already under water.

“I’ve spent 36 years here, it’s probably as bad as a flood as I’ve ever seen,” said one local.

Harrowing videos showed people getting caught up in swift moving waters Tuesday, with rescuers  risking their lives to pull them to safety.

Officials are stressing they are not out of the woods yet.

“We’ve got a lot of rain to the northwest of us,” said Mike Clark, the Fire Department Chief of Richland, Oklahoma.
