Floodwater submerges parts of Van Buren

News

Flood waters damaged city staples in Van Buren.

The above video shows single RV sitting in the middle of Park Ridge RV Campground, which floodwaters turned into a swamp-like area.

The city’s Field of Dreams Baseball Field was completely submerged in water.

Christian Johnson, who grew up playing there, said it’s devastating.

“It’s pretty crazy seeing something you’ve grown up seeing not under water being completely flooded,” Johnson said. “It’s pretty wild.”

Johnson says he can’t remember the last time the whole city has been affected by a natural disaster.
