Hutchinson: Arkansas Will Face Historic Flooding Aftermath ‘For Some Time’

Flooded port operations in Fort Smith and Van Buren managed by Five Rivers Distribution meant at least 17 families would face several weeks or months without a paycheck. But the response by Trent Goins, CEO of Fort Smith-based OK Foods, is just one example of the “amazing” community response to the historic flooding, said U.S. Rep. Steve Womack, R-Rogers.

Womack, along with Gov. Asa Hutchinson, U.S. Sens. John Boozman and Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman, R-Hot Springs, on Thursday took an aerial tour of flooded areas including record flooding at Toad Suck, Dardanelle, Ozark, Trimble Lock and Dam, Van Buren and Fort Smith.     MORE
