Storms Raise Flooding Concerns in Johnson

WASHINGTON COUNTY, AR -- Severe spring storms brought thunder, lightning, wind, rain and flooding concerns.

The storm started rolling into Washington County around 6:30 p.m. and by 7:00 p.m., Fayetteville was seeing the reality of Thursday's weather system. By Highway 112 and Interstate 540, folks could see lightning, rain and plenty of wind.

As the rain continued to fall, flooding became a concern for the City of Johnson. KNWA sent a crew out that way and there was no flooding in sight. A Johnson police officer told us he had been all over town and had not seen any real flooding either. Ball Street bridge was clear, but there was standing water in some streets.

At this time of this posting, there have not been any reports of flooding or storm damage. As the last of this storm moves through Washington County, we will be sure to let you know if that changes.
