FORDYCE, Ark. (KTHV) - Rain filled the ditches Friday morning as the remnants of Isaac passed through southern Arkansas.
Mayor of Fordyce John Macnichol spent the day dealing with flood waters, and keeping drivers safe.
"I've been real busy today, I've checked on every department I have," says Macnichol.
Officials closed a section of Highway 8 East due to high waters, but not for long.
"Within 15 minutes, you can drive back under. It doesn't take very long for it to run out," says Macnichol.
Trisha Luther works at Standfield Fish Market on Highway 8. She says the closure made for a busy drive to work.
"When it rains real bad, it always floods. When I came in, I think it was, an SUV under there with water up to its windows," says Luther.
Another area closed off Edgar Road, but the blocks don't bother resident Gerald Nutt who says, "We've been needing this. It will be gone real fast. It doesn't stay down long."
Just a block down, however, there is a more dangerous situation. Crews say the storm came through Fordyce and knocked down a very large tree, which knocked out power to the town and even broke a power line.
The power outage affected a stop light in Fordyce as well, which led to a car accident, according to Mayor Macnichol.
