While some are still deciding to stay in their homes, others are scared, they've had enough and want out, especially since it could be weeks before the water recedes.

We went out with one of the more than 20 swift water rescue teams from Oklahoma.
This group is made up of guys from GRDA, Mayes County Emergency Management, and the Tahlequah, Locust Grove, Pryor and Adair fire departments.
They're going on call after call, rescuing people and pets and bringing them to safety.

The flood victims are all grateful for the help from Oklahoma.

“God bless these guys for putting their lives in danger for us, to save us.  We appreciate everybody in Oklahoma … I love Oklahoma I know you guys and I appreciate it.” Said Flood Victim Robin Abernathy.
