Flood Magnitudes Press Release
Significant flood peaks occurred across northern Arkansas and into the lower White River Basin beginning on March 18 and continuing to the present. Stage and streamflow measurements made by teams of USGS hydrographers indicate that floods at most sites were in the 25- to 100-year recurrence interval range.
