Arkadelphia neighbors upset over drainage failure

ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (KTHV) - A drainage problem is causing major problems backing up into an Arkadelphia neighborhood. Neighbors say something needs to be done, and the city says it doesn't have the money and community leaders say the situation is unacceptable.

"I told Mr. Bolt, I said 'when are we going to fix these streets?' and he said 'there's no money', and you don't want to know what I said to him, I'm going to keep that off the camera," said Joann Nelson, who took over as Ward 4 director in Arkadelphia in January.

Stanley Powell, one of Nelson's constituents, was forced from his home over the weekend when a drainage ditch flooded. On Wednesday she consoled Powell after his wife died the night before.

Storm uproots trees across rural Clark County

CLARK COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV)- High winds caused heavy damage in Clark County early Monday morning.

State Road 51 in Arkadelphia took the brunt of the storm that passed through around 3 a.m. Monday, May 11. The storm downed trees and knocked out power to several residents in the area.

Longtime Arkadelphia resident, Frances Corn, once had a lawn covered with tall, shady oak trees. On Monday, it was a mess of tree limbs and broken branches.

"The house seems to be okay," said Corn. "I have no broken windows. I don't have any holes. I probably have some wind damage."

Corn was alone in her home Monday morning when a powerful storm whipped through Arkadelphia, taking down trees and creating a clear path of destruction along State Road 51.

"As it started getting lighter, I could notice out my front windows (and) I thought all the trees were gone," said Corn.
