    I am looking at moving to ozark ar, I currently live in Florida, I see it it close to the river, can you tell me if there is flooding issues in ozark

    • Arkansas, as any other state, experiences basically two types of flooding:

      1) Flash Floods which are due to locally heavy rain in a watershed. This impacts small streams with varying results depending on rainfall amounts in a given area. Again, as every other state, sometimes bridges are covered by water, there street flooding, and structures can be impacted.

      2) River Flooding (Arkansas River in Franklin County Arkansas ) is due to heavy rains in the watershed all the way from Colorado to Arkansas. The Corps of Engineers has a flood plan for the River which includes dams, levies, and extensive flowage easements. Flooding in Franklin County since the channelization project was completed back in the 1970’s in limited to timber and agricultural land.

      Please check with more knowledgeable sources such as the Franklin County Flood Plane Manager:

      2) Flood plane maps for Franklin County Arkansas are available at and for Ozark, AR at
