PETERSBURG, MO. (AP) – The National Weather Service in Arkansas says that a levee near the Arkansas capital city wasn’t breached, and a flash flood warning for the county has been canceled.
A statement released just before midnight Friday said that the North Little Rock levee remains intact and in “no immediate danger of failure.” NWS senior forecaster Chuck Rickard tells The Associated Press that a berm around fuel tanks along the Arkansas River had been breached, instead.
The National Weather Service advised residents to “remain alert for potentially changing conditions as record flows continue along the Arkansas River.”
