Scenes from Missouri River flooding at Boonville

Photos show gut-wrenching views of the devastation as far as the eye can see.

This year’s flood is taking its toll on farmers and ranchers in Missouri. Since March, more than 50 federal and nonfederal levees have either breached or overtopped, allowing the Missouri River to inundate farm fields and small towns across the state.

Click through the slideshow to get a look at Missouri River flooding at Boonville as of June 5. The spread of the water is into Howard County. Farm fields, roads and even some local businesses are underwater.
