Governor Beebe Touring Flood Damage In East Arkansas

Gov. Mike Beebe is touring damage caused by ongoing flooding in an east Arkansas city.

The governor plans to visit Brinkley on Tuesday afternoon and tour damage caused by the flooding, which began with torrential rains on June 29. Beebe will be joined by the Brinkley mayor to tour flooded areas.

Parts of the city remain flooded more than a week after the heavy rainfall.

Beebe's office says they're currently awaiting results from damage assessments.
