JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- The thunderstorm caused heavy flooding in parts of Region 8, Saturday.

Magnolia Road in Jonesboro was one of many roads left underwater, but Jonesboro resident, Brenda Fletcher said they never deal with flooding on their road.

"We didn't know what had happened, we thought a levy broke or something," Fletcher told Region 8 News. "Just got real high and it was real fast running through, it was just crazy."

She said her front yard soon turned into a river nearly coming close to flooding her home.

"Almost, it got almost to the porch and it was probably two foot or over two foot tall, it covered all the bushes in the yard and everything," Fletcher explained. 

Fletcher said the ditches and drains could be filled with debris from the last storm causing a high level of flooding. 

"The city need to come out and I guess check the ditches and stuff and just see where it came from," she said.
