The Big Tarkio River jumped from eight feet, to nearly 23 feet, in just over six hours Thursday. Then it fell to nine feet by Friday afternoon, just over 24 hours later.
Officials in Craig, Missouri feared for the worst, but Friday afternoon said the racing river had little effect on flooding there.
The river graph measured at Fairfax shows the dramatic rise and fall of the Big Tarkio.
