LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District is issuing a small craft advisory for the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System in Arkansas. Rainfall in Oklahoma and Kansas over the last few days is causing flows on the system to rise.
Small craft advisories are issued when flows exceed 70,000 cubic feet per second. Strong currents and large debris can threaten the safety of pleasure craft during high flows.
River flows at Van Buren are currently more than 70,000 c.f.s. and rising. Flows exceeding 70,000 cfs will make their way downstream over the next few days with more rainfall forecasted for Oklahoma over the next three to four days.
Daily river information can be obtained at www.swl-wc.usace.army.mil or the Corps’ mobile App, which can be found in mobile App stores by searching for USACE Little Rock.
