LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -‑ The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is issuing a small craft advisory for the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System in Arkansas. Heavy rainfall in Arkansas over the last 24 hours resulted in Arkansas River flows exceeding 70,000 cubic feet per second at Ozark.

Small craft advisories are issued when flows exceed 70,000 c.f.s. Strong currents and large debris can threaten the safety of pleasure craft during high flows.

Current flows at Ozark are near 85,000 c.f.s. A crest greater than 90,000 c.f.s. will make its way downstream over the next few days.

Daily river information can be obtained at or the Little Rock District’s mobile App, which can be found in mobile App stores by searching for USACE Little Rock.

Recreation information can be found on the Internet at, on Facebook at and on X (Twitter) at
