Flooding in Lawrence Co.

LAWRENCE COUNTY, AR (KAIT)- Heavy rain across Region 8 caused one county to experience flooding in certain areas across town.

"I always worry about the water coming up because when it does it comes up in a hurry," said Resident Laverne Dunkin.

With enough rain it can reach up into parts of Dunkin's home.

"My house is kind of high up but behind the house I have a lower room and it gets in there bad," said Dunkin.

In 2009, Dunkin said her yard flooded so bad she was out of her home for days.

"I have a son in Portia I stayed with for about a week the last time," she said. "The water was up for a week around the trees."

She said she is prepared if it happens again.

"I've got my insurance papers in the car in case it starts coming up," she said. If it does, I'm getting out of here!"
