Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Thursday that he believes the northeast Arkansas counties affected by the recent severe weather will receive a federal disaster declaration. Hutchinson advised residents of the area to listen to officials and follow instructions to evacuate as needed. "Do not attempt to travel unless you are fleeing an area subject to flooding or under an evacuation order". The local response teams and authorities have more information on the rising floodwaters, weather and circumstances and the need for the evacuation, so don't second guess them. Never drive through a flooded road.

The Black River reached record levels this week in parts of Arkansas and Missouri, following storms that dumped up to a foot of rain on parts of the two states last weekend. Additional storms passing through the state Wednesday only exacerbated the situation.
