We could really use a break from the rain up here.

That picture is from down at Little Rock.

Flooding bad, upriver. My parents and grandmother have quite a bit under water (near Petit Jean) No houses though. Looks like most all crops in the bottoms will be lost.

Flow is at 560,000cfs at Toad Suck. Supposed to crest Sunday or Monday. Itís the largest flood in recorded history for the Arkansas river.

All the major highways around my parent's up in Muskogee OK are flooded out, most of the industrial areas are all under water.

Got a good buddy on the FD in Fort Smith, they're busy.

This water will be causing damage for weeks on its way down.

I just saw the AGFC post that water is coming over the lake conway dam from the river back upstream.

Really bad. I have been following the story because my mother lives in Tulsa and I have a lot of friends around there. Tremendous flooding all along the river - Keystone Lake (just upriver) has been releasing 275,000 cfs to keep from overtopping the spillway but they were able to reduce that today. There are some 70 year old levees in Tulsa that are holding so far but it has been very dicey. The tiny town of Braggs has been completely cut off. Other than a railroad track the only way in\out is by boat. Thankfully the rain seems to have stopped for now. Y'all stay safe!

That is certainly where the big crest came from! The river has been high for several months and all that rain in Oklahoma and Kansas pushed it out.

Yes sir . They have Toad Suck festival/days every year.
Uses to go every yr, when I was growing up.
Beer & Bikinis. Good memories.
Used to do a lot of snagging below the dam there, and Maumelle. Never seen the water anywhere near its present level.
Crazy.

My canoe/kayak group is headed to SE Oklahoma this weekend. We have a couple smaller rivers in mind but as of today both are still high from Wednesday's rains. We postponed the trip from early May because of flooding and here we are, still dealing with it. I can't imagine what the bigger rivers look like about now.

Thatís crazy! So far all of my friends in AR are safe from flooding. Buddy that lives in Little Rock said they should be fine, but a lot of flooding close to them. Stay safe!

WOW! I grew up in Conway, but don't really keep up with anyone that's still around there. Spent a lot of time at Toad Suck park, and always had a fast toad for the toad races at the festival.

I just drove over the Arkansas river. No doubt is it the highest I've ever seen it. I crossed it on 30 just b4 i40. The water was in parking lots! I've seen the Mississippi flood, but not the Arkansas like that. The Mississippi river bottom is flooded out too. Stay safe.

Prayers up for all affected - The Arkansas runs right through my hometown of Tulsa and I always remember it as a wide, shallow and lazy river. Seeing it now is unreal. Those levees have not been tested since they were built many decades ago. The National Guard in Oklahoma and Arkansas are working 24/7 trying to sandbag leaks as they spring up. Lots of rain in the forecast for next week
