Arkansas River Flooding Update

Arkansas River Flooding 061219

Based on impact statements from previous floods and the newest forecast crests, this will be the worst flooding in recorded history along the Arkansas River from Toad Suck to points northwest.

Some long time record crests could be surpassed by five feet above the record set in 1945.

Levee over topping will be possible if not likely with significant impacts to life and property across a very large area. Additional significant rain across the Arkansas River basin this week will ensure historic flooding will be prolonged and impacts will remain significant through much of the upcoming summer.    MORE
