Rita's Remnants Moving Slowly Through Arkansas; Tornadoes Possible

September 24, 2005 -- Posted at 7:27 pm CDT

Editor's Note: Storm watches have now been extended into central and northern Arkansas. Local storm alerts here

LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ Arkansas officials and emergency workers
remain on standby today with weather forecasts warning of flash
floods and possible high water into Monday in the wake of Hurricane
Rita.

Rex Nelson, a spokesman for Governor Huckabee, said the
Operation KARE office at the state Capitol set up after Hurricane
Katrina hit the Gulf Coast on August 29th is up and running to help
the thousands who have poured into the state the last two weeks.

Now state workers may need to turn their attention to fellow
Arkansans if the waters rise in the southern part of the state as
the National Weather Service is warning. Flash flood warnings are
in effect into tomorrow.

And the weather service issued a tornado warning for parts of
Bradley, Cleveland and Drew counties this afternoon. A tornado
watch for south and southeast Arkansas also was in effect and
included predictions of hail and wind gusts up to 60 miles per
hour, along with dangerous lightning.
