Hutchinson Seeks Federal Flood Support

Governor Asa Hutchinson is asking federal agencies for direct support and will tour flooded areas with members of the state’s congressional delegation Thursday, he said in a news conference Wednesday.

Describing the devastation that has already occurred and is yet to come, Hutchinson said, “This is a flood of historic magnitude. It surpasses all Arkansas River flooding in our recorded history.”

Hutchinson said he has signed a second emergency proclamation raising the state’s total contribution to $350,000 at the request of the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management.      MORE
