Heavy rainfall floods Gravette

News

Heavy rains is causing flooding in Gravette streets.

Neighbors said Baker Street is notorious for filling up with water because the drainage systems are not cleaned out enough.

Karynn Ally lives on Baker Street and said only two or three drains are located in the area.

This sometimes causes her street to be undrivable.

“When it floods, the trashcans tip over and the trash just drains back into there. I’ve never seen anyone come back here and clean them,” said Karynn Ally, Gravette resident.

Ally and another neighbor said the city told them the drainage is clogged.
