Flooding causing impassable roads in Sebastian County


FORT SMITH, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — UPDATE: The FSPD says heavy rain moved south-east of the region this morning. Flooding continues in some areas, particularly parts of east-central Oklahoma and west-central Arkansas, where three to five inches of rain fell with isolated amounts around six inches. Many low-water crossings are likely flooded with water and not passable.

The Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office also reiterated why drivers should never drive around barricades because the road under flooding could be severely damaged.

Officials say it will likely take several hours for all the water to go through the local drainage system.
