Mother nature continues to wreak havoc on millions from the Dakotas to Tennessee.

Monday morning in Houston, people are picking up the pieces after heavy rain, wind and hail swept across the city, knocking out power to thousands.

Over the weekend, raging flash floods swallowed roads and vehicles.
Nearly 150 drivers had to be rescued.

On Monday flood watches and warnings have been posted in more than a dozen states.

In Fargo, North Dakota, 100,000 sandbags are ready to go.

Residents are keeping a close eye on the flooded Red River, which is expected to crest Wednesday at 20 feet above flood level.

While the rain and wind in Tennessee over the weekend didn't dampen the spirit of these marathon runners, it did demolish a building, leaving it covered in boards that look like pick-up sticks.

While more rain is expected in many areas, other areas like Denver may get some may snow.
