I think War Eagle got close to 10 inches, most of the cities were fine, some yards flooded and some streets had some problems but not too bad. But they had to open the floodgates at Beaver Lake this morning, apparently the water got to within three feet of the top of the dam which is higher than I've ever seen it. They are saying they will leave the floodgates open all day and into tomorrow. My boss has a house at Calico Rock that apparently got flooded, but the sheriff has closed the roads there, so he's waiting until the weekend to check out the damage. But yes, a lot of rain.

VERY SCARY for those folks!!

We have a small creek behind our house that overflowed. It goes into Lake Hamilton and we aren't in any danger at all...just a small taste of what COULD happen.

Baxter county (Mountain Home) has had a lot of flooding especially in the Norfork area. The Buffalo is up 40 feet and Crooked Creek is up as well. Since both flow into the White River, flooding is a given. Check out the Baxter Bulletin at Baxter Bulletin - www.baxterbulletin.com -. for more info. Bull Shoals Lake is set to rise some 25 feet as well. Thinking of all you flood victims where ever you may be...........
