The Spring and Black River Flooding, By Air.

Jonesboro (KAIT) - Thanks to Medic 1 Air we were able to view the flooding at Black Rock and Hardy by air.

Notice the flooding in the area that's not river related. The flooding at Black Rock from the Black river extends for miles in any direction. What was a normal river width of around 100 feet now is wider than the Mississippi.

Hardy suffered severe damage at the River Bend Camp ground we saw a house that had it's pilings knocked out from underneath itself as well
