Overnight, raging rivers destroyed homes and left people stranded, as they waited to be reached by rescue boats or helicopters. By Tuesday morning, emergency teams had conducted over a hundred swift water rescues. The dire situation prompted President Joe Biden to approve an emergency declaration, unlocking federal resources for the state.
Meanwhile, residents across the state navigated several feet of water that flooded their homes and downtown streets. In areas that had seen heavy flooding earlier in the storms' path, and where water had receded, cleanup efforts began in earnest.

By Tuesday afternoon, some of the worrying projections that three major rivers would overflow did not come to pass, offering some reprieve to downstream communities and disaster response teams. But emergency officials say they will continue to monitor water levels, given the rain may last until Friday.
