JANUARY 22, 2007 - Posted at 4:41 p.m. CST

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Governor Mike Beebe has added Woodruff County to the list of declared state disaster areas due to flooding over the weekend of January 13-15.  This brings the total number of Region 8 counties on the list to five, as Cross, Greene, Jackson and White counties were on the original list released last week.

Additional counties may also be added as flood levels drop to allow assessment of currently flooded roads and bridges.

The proclamations make these counties eligible for public assistance to help restore infrastructure such as roads and bridges that were damaged by weather.
