Governor Beebe to continue touring storm damage

Wednesday, April 27, 2011 ~ Updated 11:50 AM

LITTLE ROCK - Governor Beebe will continue surveying damage from this week's storms Wednesday morning. He will tour Little Rock Air Force Base at 10:00 a.m., and will visit North Pulaski High School after that. Beebe is also continuing to monitor flooding reports throughout the state, with the high water remaining in parts of North Arkansas and rapidly rising waters in parts of East Arkansas.

Governor Beebe has amended his previous State of Emergency declaration to include the storms of April 14. President Obama called Governor Beebe Tuesday afternoon, and Beebe told him to expect a request for a Presidential Disaster Declaration in the coming days. Assessment teams from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will arrive in Arkansas today, as well.
