A massive clean up is underway in parts of the Ozarks today. Rivers swollen by flood waters are back to near normal levels leaving county crews and residents a big mess to clean up.
Ozark, Missouri received three and a half inches of rain in the past two days.
But much more than that came through the Riverside area of the Finley River in what one official called a huge wave of water.
The Riverside Park in Ozark was underwater Tuesday. Today, crews spent the day cleaning debris, trash and mud from everything.
The water came from heavy rainfall in Webster County which caused the Finley to swell.
Phil Amtower, director of Christian County Emergency Management, says the county's highway department worked late last night and early this morning to patch roads and fix those that washed out from the flood water that came fast and high.
Bob Hawkins lives near Jenkins Bridge along Springhill Road near Sparta.
He says the newly built bridge, constructed two feet above the 100 year flood stage, had water all the way up to the bridge deck Tuesday.
