Turn Around...Don't Drown
This shows to power of flood waters. This was at the entrance to Claire's apartment building. Below is the Arkansas River at County Farm Road. As of mid morning Chenal Valley had recorded 6.45 inches of rain. More has been reported in some of the metro area. Much more rain is expected. One person drown early this morning in Falukner and dozens of Vilonia residents had to be evacuated. This follows the almost total distruction of their community by a tornado earlier in the week. In the past week there have been at least 14 storm related deaths in Arkansas. We've had it easy compared to Alabama.
