Spring River, Hardy Flood – Easter Weekend, April 2011
SolarIMG and DERP team member Freya in Arkansas took these incredible images. Region 8 News reports that the death toll from the flooding has reached 8.
“They’re calling for a PDS tornado watch for all of the state again tonight and i have seen National Guard, FEMA, and even USGS crawling all over the place. USGS was taking readings off the bridge when I was there taking pics. I’ve heard that Mississippi River is seeing flood stages that haven’t been seen since the 1930s” said Freya.
