Flooding in central Arkansas

By: 1 May 2011 4 Comments

It’s been a turbulent spring thus far in Arkansas and this weekend was no exception.

Here in central Arkansas, flood conditions rolled in with the rains that started Saturday night and continued through Sunday. According to the National Weather Service, four to eight inches of rain fell during the weekend and more heavy rain is in the forecast through Tuesday.

Here in Benton, the Saline River serves as a handy guide as to how much rain has fallen. If the river is out of its banks, it’s a sure bet that heavy rains are common throughout Saline County. The Saline River was out of its banks, indeed, and the following pictures taken about 6 p.m. in Benton on Sunday are proof.

The Lyle Park access to the Saline River was closed due to flooding.

A closer look at the Lyle Park access. Notice the picnic tables that are usually next to the river rather than in it.

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or
    vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I
    think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be
