Flooding in central Arkansas
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.
