The Jonesboro E-911 Center reported early morning evacuations in one Jonesboro area due to flash flood waters. 

According to Jeff Presley, an emergency evacuation was issued in the Race Street/Mary Jane areas. 

Rescue units were requesting boats to the area, but the waters soon went down far enough that boats weren't needed. 

The American Red Cross has a shelter open at Allen Park.
