AG Rutledge says Arkansas will overcome devastating flooding


Attorney General Leslie Rutledge is addressing how devastating the record flooding has been for the Natural State as a whole.

Speaking on Fox Buisness’ After the Bell, Rutledge detailed how it’s going to cost an estimated $100 million for cleanup across Arkansas.

She said at least 850 homes have been destroyed, 120 in one community. 

Rutledge said through it all Arkansans stick together. 

“We are very resilient, very strong, and we are one big small town,” Rutledge said.

Rutledge also spoke on how our agriculture community has been hit hard by the flooding, which she said will impact the state as a whole since farming is such an economic driver for Arkansas.
