PORTAGEVILLE, MO (KFVS) -

Check out these before and after pictures of the drought at the Old Ferry Landing at Portageville.

Edith Partee has lived in Portageville all her life. She shared these pictures of the Old Ferry Landing before the drought this year. The other picture was taken on Aug. 27.

Partee says she watched four people in a truck drive to the water at the river, unload a boat and were still able to walk across the water and push the boat across as well.

The Heartland is on day 143 of the drought.
