As one of the wettest Junes on record came to an end, July starts with a splash as well. Rain is in the forecast for much of the week, and it's effecting everything from holiday plans to local business.

With countless roads either closed or with signs warning of possible high water, area creeks, rivers and streams are rushing out of their boundaries.

The raging waters are flooding crops and destroying tourism for the Fourth of July holiday. The Flood of 2007 is now bringing back memories of the last time the spillway flowed over in 1990.

The spillway at Denison Dam is expected to overflow later this week.

First News reporter Nicole Holt was at the Denison Dam this morning watching the spillway.

The high waters are already causing fireworks shows to be canceled from Lake Texoma Lodge to Highport Marina.

Officials are worried too many people will try to get on the lake, and it's just too dangerous.

Remember, these areas are dangerous so officials are suggesting you not just go out and look.

We'll be posting the best pictues and video from the Flood of 2007 here on KXII.com.
