just looking for fellow Arkies, I hope no one is flooded.
It would take a flood of biblical proportions to reach me here in Hillcrest. I cross the river on my daily commute, it's been looking pretty scary. I dont think there's any danger of serious property flooding in town, but to the west of town there are some residences along the river. The river's so high there's no room to float a small boat under the railroad bridge.
Yeah, and its DEEP too!
we are safe at our home, but I grew up close to the river, and I see places that are flooding that my grandfather used to tell me about
Batesville, AR. No flooding here but I live very close to the White River and water has gotten within a block of my house in the past.
Over in the US Members sub-forum there is a thread for TDPRI members from Arkansas. To date only a handful of members have chimed in on that thread, but I don't think any of those usernames have showed up in this thread yet. Hope they're okay.
Why did this have to be a serious thread? Now I can't make this joke...
(I hope all you Arkansans are ok.)
Mrs Baby lived in Little Rock before she became Mrs Baby and has been following the news. Hope everyone is as well as can be.
I was born there. We lived on Broad St when I was born, moved to College St. when I was 6. People used to swim in the White River at the sand bar.
Glen Campbell and Louie Shelton.
They grow good guitar players there.
I’ll slink away now.
I lived in Fort Smith for many years before moving to Florida. Fort Smith seems to be getting the worst of it.
Not me, but I grew up in Boonville, California, where the Force of Arkansas was very strong.
I join in hoping that people are OK.
I live on Central Ave. The sand bar is still there.
I have family in Hot Springs, McGee, Wynne and Paragould. My Mom used to live in North Little Rock.
Northwest corner of the state.
My wife's sister and her husband live in Conway, my bil said the Burns Park golf course that's close to Little Rock is flooding. I can't really envision it flooding because of all of the elevations changes, but I suppose the lower portion is what would flood, that would leave some of it okay. In fact there are two courses there, I hope they survive, because I enjoyed playing both of them while vacationing in Arkansas.
I spent a lot of years there as a kid, My father was working on the lock and dam project. I went to Arkansas Tech for my first couple of years of college. My dorm was near the levee holding back Lake Dardanelle. I hope the levee hasn't topped there; the whole campus would be flooded, and the nuclear plant is just upstream.
The levee at Dardanelle did not hold. The nuclear plant was not in danger, but the other damage is huge. Lots of video is online.

The Dardanelle levee breach was was southeast of the town and Russellville. Checking online I can find nothing about the lake flooding over or the college even mentioned.
Being from Memphis, TN originally, I've known quite a few women from AR. But that's for another time......
