Flash Flood Warning
Statement as of 4:31 PM CDT on May 24, 2015

... Flash Flood Warning remains in effect for Washington... Madison...
Crawford... Carroll and Benton counties in northwest Arkansas... and
Sebastian and Franklin counties in west central Arkansas... and
eastern Sequoyah County in east central Oklahoma... and eastern Adair
and southeastern Delaware counties in northeast Oklahoma... and
northeastern Le Flore County in southeast Oklahoma until 900 PM
CDT...

At 427 PM CDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
thunderstorms with very heavy rain over the warned area. Radar
estimates that between 2 and 3 inches of rain has fallen over
portions of northwest Arkansas and more light to moderate rain is
ongoing. Reports of flooding have recently been received from
Greenwood. Water rescues have also occurred earlier in Washington
County.

Runoff from this excessive rainfall will cause flash flooding to
occur. Some locations that will experience flash flooding include...
Bentonville... Berryville... Cedarville... Charleston... Eureka
Springs... Fayetteville... Fort Smith... Huntsville... Mountainburg...
Natural Dam... Ozark... Rogers... Siloam Springs... Springdale... Van
Buren... Alma... Altus... Arkoma... Aurora... Barling... Beaver... Bella
Vista... Blackburn... Bloomer... Bonanza... Boston... branch...
Brentwood... Burnville and Carrollton.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the Road to
unknown depths. It only takes two feet of rushing water to carry away
most sport utility vehicles and pickups. Take a different Route to
reach your destination or wait until the water recedes. Remember...
most flood related deaths occur in automobiles.
