Woman Kayaks in Floodwater After Heavy Rain Hits Northern Arkansas

A woman was spotted traveling by kayak after heavy rain flooded parts of Paragould, Arkansas, on June 7.

Christopher Crawford recorded this video and told Storyful he’s lived at his home in Paragould for four years, but this was the first time he’d seen such flooding.

“We live beside an 8-mile ditch, and they’re currently building a bike trail along it, and it is probably contributing to this flooding,” Crawford said.

The footage shows a woman floating around the floodwater in a blue kayak.

“She was floating around for a good 30 minutes to an hour,” he said. Credit: Christopher Crawford via Storyful
