The severe weather threat is not over for those millions of people in the middle of the country and while the southeast is bracing for dangerous heat ginger is tracking all of that. Good morning to you, ginger. Good morning. Florida, parts of the southeast for at least a week have been above average. Now going into record territory. It's all under this big high pressure system. This weekend we're talking about Macon or Montgomery potentially sighing their first 100-degree temperature in -- ever, in may in recorded history. Heat indices. 103, the feels like in Tallahassee, Atlanta should feel like 93. Come with me. Along the ridge that jet stream that is keeping all the heat there, severe storms and have already seen them pop in west Texas, Canadian Texas. It's not populated there but will move east to areas much more populated. Abilene, Oklahoma City up to Chicago and Grand Rapids. Kalamazoo, Benton harbor or down through Kansas City, keep an eye on damaging winds this afternoon and evening and flooding because this comes with that stationary front. Check out that rescue in Kansas. I think unfortunately, we will see places like the Arkansas river keep draining south and see more flooding all the way from the great Lakes back into Texas and Oklahoma. A rough week about to get rougher. That weather is causing record floods in the heartland and Marcus Moore is near the Arkansas river in sand spring, Oklahoma, with the very latest. Good morning, Marcus. Reporter: Cecilia, good morning. Officials in the Tulsa area issued voluntary evacuation orders for those living along the Arkansas river mind me. A sense of the scale of all this and that torrent of water that is rushing by officialing 250,000 cubic feet of water and that's the keystone dam. Just massive amounts of water and we have seen extraordinary pictures of what this flooding is doing. Take a look at this. Two runaway barges crashing into a dam farther downstream in muskogee county. A sense of how powerful the water is and heard ginger talking about the rescue in Kansas. Here's video of that. Just a dramatic rescue. A man trapped in his car ten hours before crews were able to rescue him and bring him back to safety and back here in Oklahoma, some residents who lived here in this area for decades tell me they have never seen anything like this. Michael. Thank you so much.
