CLARKSVILLE, MO (KTVI)-- Volunteers continue to race the clock in Clarksville. The Mississippi River has reached the downtown streets.

Residents are working to save homes and businesses along the river. A temporary wall has given them a sense of security for now. Thanks to local volunteers along the Clarksville riverfront, in less than 24 hours, a pile of dirt has transformed into a large anti-flood structure.

Governor Nixon is expected to tour Clarksville tomorrow at 1:30 p.m.
