The heavy rainfall from the past week has caused area lakes... small
creeks and streams... low water crossings and low lying areas as well
as the major rivers to flood. This flooding will likely continue for
much of this week. Area lakes are near or slightly over full
capacity. High releases are required and this may flood the
downstream river. Also... tributaries that feed into these reservoirs
will also back up and flood until lake levels get under control.
Roads near these lakes may be under water due to flooding from these
lakes... especially Eufaula... Wister... Sardis and Hugo.

* Runoff from this excessive rainfall will cause flooding to occur.
Some locations that could experience flooding include... Antlers...
Bentonville... Berryville... Cedarville... Charleston... Clayton...
Eufaula... Eureka Springs... Fayetteville... Fort Smith... Hugo...
Huntsville... Jay... McAlester... Miami... Mountainburg... Muskogee...
Natural Dam... Ozark... Poteau... Pryor... Rogers... Sallisaw... Siloam
Springs... Springdale... Stigler... Stilwell... Tahlequah... Van Buren
and Vinita.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the Road to
unknown depths. It only takes two feet of rushing water to carry away
most sport utility vehicles and pickups. Take a different Route to
reach your destination or wait until the water recedes. Remember...
most flood related deaths occur in automobiles.
