Pocahontas Flood 2011...

Please keep in your prayers the people in my hometown of Pocahontas, AR. The largest recorded flood has hit the town and surrounding farms due to the overflow of the Black River and other nearby rivers and creeks.

This wide shot is of East Pocahontas and shows several flooded businesses. Just outside the top-right corner of the photo are residential houses.

I don't know the background story, but somehow and for some reason the local KFC was spared by sandbags. The grocery store next to it, where can be found fresh produce and healthy foods, etc., did not experience the same fate.

This final shot is of the local community college, again in East Pocahontas.
