A local family is grieving today at the loss of three family members in the flash floods in Arkansas.
Nancy Hathorne lost her 30 year old son, Anthony Smith, and his two youngest children, Joey, age 5 and Katelynn, age 2. Anthony was able to save his wife and 13 year old son and a friend, but could not save the younger children or himself.
Kinsley Basinger, 6 & Shane Basinger, 34, Gloster were also killed.
Our condolences go out to these families.
Wheeler has some photos of his visit there on The Norla Blog.
A lot of local people go to Ouachita National Forest to camp for a weekend. The first video below was taken by a YouTuber on his 2007 trip.
The second video shows some of the devastation after the flood.
