The Army Corps of Engineers has issued a small craft advisory for the Arkansas River.

Rain across Arkansas has caused flows to rise. During high flows, strong currents and large debris can threaten the safety of small, pleasure craft.

Small craft advisories are issued when flows exceed 70,000 cubic feet per second. Flows on the river below Little Rock are currently at 75,000 cubic feet per second.

More rain could push the flows higher and cause the advisory to remain in effect for much longer.

Daily river information can be found here.
