April, 2017 Monthly Report/Other Reports
It was a busy April, especially in the latter half of the month. Several heavy rain events saturated the soil, and set Arkansas up for the big flood event on the 29th/30th. More water fell than the ground could hold, and this led to life threatening flash flooding and river flooding. Along the way, at least ten tornadoes were counted, and these were generally weak (rated EF0/EF1).
