Mr Manry said the footage was captured at "Highway 78 on Oaklahoma side of Red River bridge" near the town of Yuba.

According to local news reports, that area was closed on Sunday, June 21, after a landslide broke off a chunk of the road around 20 feet wide and 30 feet deep.

Several roads were closed as rivers swelled, reaching near-record levels.
