The weather in parts of the Midwest is starting to clear after days of drenching rain and flash flooding.
But the severe flooding threat continues throughout the Midwest, which has already been blamed for over twenty deaths.
The big problem here when it comes to the storms, is they just don't want to move anywhere fast.
So we are continually, each day, see these storms re-ignite.
Now there is still the potential here over the next few days to get several more inches of rainfall, scattered throughout the Midwest and that's the biggest fear as many of these rivers and creeks are near bank full.
It could set out flash flooding in just moments in many cases.
