In our area, Beebe issued a diaster declaration for Crawford, Franklin, Johnson, Logan, Madison, Scott and Sebastian counties.

The Arkansas Department of Emergency Management is on the ground with the Federal Emergency Management Agency in about a dozen of the affected counties to determine whether arkansas will qualify for federal assistance.


  • I really wish 5news had a more reliable and better commenting system. This one is too flaky and works when it wants to..

  • As I was trying to say before it was tossed out. I don’t see why these places are getting special treatment when Bella Vista all the way to Fayettevilla were hit just as hard if nor harder. It sounds like Beebe is still hiding under his desk to avoid real work and is trying to pass the buck yet again.
