Heavy Flooding In Areas of Central Arkansas

People evacuate parts of Maumelle during heavy flooding.
MORGAN, AR -- At the height of severe weather this afternoon, hundreds of people without power and yards flooded across Central Arkansas.

Some people even evacuated their homes.

A family living in Morgan, near Maumelle, came home from church today and just started eating lunch when they heard the strong sound of wind and heavy rain.

Barbara Bryant's lived in the neighborhood for 30 years and says she's never seen it flood so fast.

She and her family quickly left the home this afternoon.

Bryant said, "It looks like the sky opens up and water just poured down and we heard all this and said let's get out of here this is too much water!"

There was also severe flooding at a Maumelle apartment complex where some people evacuated instead of risking the high water danger.

Also today, reports of power lines and trees down across central Arkansas.
