POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) - It's been exactly four years since a massive flood devastated Pocahontas and surrounding areas, killing one person.
"It was the biggest disaster I can remember," said Angie Koons, a lifetime resident of Pocahontas. "There was only one fatality in the whole thing, which I think is a miracle because of how fast the flood came up. It was just so widespread."
In 2011, the high flood waters broke the levees around Pocahontas in 13 places and forced residents to evacuate.
The floods trapped people inside the city and devastated areas like the Robil Addition.
Four years later, residents said they praise the community for pulling together to help each other.
