Good evening and we begin tonight with a water world from colorado to the airlicarolinas. We're seeing families stranded on water logged porches, a car turned into a kind of a noah's arc and there in missouri what looks like a lake is actually a highway. 12 states are facing threats of floods tonight, so much rain they're measuring it not in inches but in foot. Ginger zee tells us what's to come. Reporter: That's the bank of the river there, and all these houses underwater. Swallowing neighborhoods whole. Flash flooding in central and southern missouri. Shutting down highway 44. Dismantling roads from beneath. The floodgates erupting on the osage river. The relentless rains leaving camp grounds, and soccer fields, hardly identifiable. In waynesville, missouri, they are still searching for a woman swept away tuesday. Her 4-year-old son already found dead. In the last seven days, parts of missouri have had more than 16 inches of rain -- the town of richland with at least 17 inches. The culprit -- this stationary front, complex after complex of heavy rain and storms have been riding along this thing. It's slow dancing around the southern plains and northern ozarks. Unfortunately, north georgia is suffering a similar scene. I can't live here no more, I'm through. Reporter: Charles wittington's dog diesel, got stuck. Right there, being rescued in the raging floods in pickens county. And this backhoe, caught in the swirling muddy waters, had been brought in to clear the road -- in case there was flooding. Now needing its own rescue. We just found out tonight that the community of wanesville in missouri, one of those hardest hit are letting some folks go back in to get things but the evacuation order right back in place. This is why, unfortunately I've got a map to show you that has a lot more rain on it and especially for that same area that got hit. You can see south of kansas city there and north of spring field back into parts of eastern kansas and of course the inundated southeast this summer getting more. The currents are tough and dangerous. Thank you so much. Now we're going to move next
