PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - The Arkansas River continues to rise after the heavy rain this weekend, and now Pine Bluff is seeing flooding all around.
"It'll still take several days for the water level to get to where people are accustomed to," said James McKinnie, Chief Navigation and Maintenance Section with the Army Corps of Engineers.
"The last time we had this type of flooding was in 2008," said Larry Dean Drake, who lives near the Arkansas River.
On Wednesday, Drake rushed over to a nearby island, worried about his goats.
"Today they didn't have but 10 feet," he said. "I had to go get them because the space run out."
So he hopped on his party barge, loaded them up and took them to his home. One road near the river was completely covered by quickly moving water.
McKinnie said the water is unsafe for boaters.
