Deadly Arkansas floods

Post by Caribbean Traveler » Sun Jun 13, 2010 7:30 am

latest news is that 18 are dead and 22 missing from that campground that got flooded. Campgrounds many times are located on low ground next to streams or rivers. These are pretty but dangerous locations. Spring and summer storms as in this case can cause flash flooding. A very sad story here.

This is a good reminder of picking a safe campground location. Flood water can rise too fast to get to safety as we have seen in this case.

I have not heard of any updates recently. Were any other survivors found?

Nope, the story just dropped off of the radar.
