JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Extreme flooding in Jonesboro has caused issues for residents and businesses alike.

Businesses such as Kiddly Toes and Abilities Unlimited are just some of those dealing with too much water.

On Facebook, Kiddly Toes, 2810 E. Highland Dr., posted a video showing their store with water just below displays and racks.

The store states they will be closed until further notice.

In addition, Abilities Unlimited Recycling, 806 Burke Ave., states on social media that four of their pickup trucks had "water above the dashboard and 20 inches of water inside" their recycling center and offices.

They are suspending the collection of blue bags until at least next Tuesday.

Viewers also sent plenty of photos of flooding in businesses to Region 8 News.

Some from Hampton Inn, 2900 Phillips Dr., show patrons inside the hotel with water covering the floor.
