Right now there is an emergency in Arkansas.
After already facing tornadoes and deadly floods this week, the state is preparing for historic flooding that’s expected to wreck havoc across the state for weeks to come.
Rising waters from the Arkansas River have taken over entire communities.
The National Weather Service said that every large community along the Arkansas River is going to be affected, with major flooding over the next seven days.
The Dardanelle levee, some 70 miles upstream from Little Rock, breached overnight, leaving what one official called a “wide open hole of water.”
Ports are now shut down along the swollen river, delivering a devastating blow to the state’s economy.
Officials say the state is set to lose $23 million a day.
Also a levee failure on the Mississippi River has caused mandatory evacuations for residents in West Quincy, Missouri.
More than 300 roads are underwater with the potential for more to come.
