Beebe: Long recovery from Ark. flooding

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Gov. Mike Beebe says recovery in Arkansas from flooding will be long-term and some farmers will face devastating losses.

He addressed members of the Delta Grassroots Caucus, Friday. Farmers in the Delta are struggling to stay afloat as flood waters continue to rise.

"Other issues in Prairie County, just east of Des Arc is the constant concern of sand boils and the degradation those sand boils can have on the integrity of a levee," says Gov. Beebe.

The integrity of the economy is at risk. Chris Masingill is the federal co-chair of the Delta Regional Authority that works to stimulate economic development in the Delta.

"These numbers are going to be enormous for public safety and health, infrastructure, business, and commerce. Those are the areas impacted the hardest," says Chris Masingill.

Masingill says he can't speculate how much money this means.

Update: Roads starting to reopen in Ark.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Flood waters continue to rise all over central Arkansas, closing several roads and highways due to rising waters.

Some roads that were previously closed are starting to reopen.

After several days of Highway 67/167 being closed due to high water levels, there is some good news to report. Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department says Hwy 67-167 from Main St in Jacksonville to I-440 is open, but one southbound lane is still closed.

Roadways that are open:

  • Crittenden Co: Hwy 131 Section 3A at log mile 1.99 at Edmondson has been re-opened.

  • Randolph Co: Hwy 90 Section 7A at log mile 1.49 at Eleven Point River has been re-opened.

Flooding continues Monday in Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Rising flood waters and more rain continue to plague Arkansas.

Stephen Hawks with the Faulkner County Sheriff's Department says all the low-lying areas around Lake Conway are flooding. That's from Mayflower to south of Vilonia. It is not a mandatory evacuation but they are encouraging everyone who lives in those areas to pack up and get out.

The Faulkner County S.P.C.A. is need of supplies for their rescued animals. "Rescue pets are not being moved from the Don Owens Sports Complex. However, they are in need of dry bedding for the animals and cedar chips for horses. Also, the roof on the complex is damaged and tarps are needed."

Prairie County authorities have issued an evacuation notice for residents in the flood prone areas east of the White River in the Des Arc and Biscoe Areas. The roads in the area will soon be impassable due to flooding.
