Sections of Pocahontas, Arkansas were nearly completely submerged on Tuesday, May 2 due to spillover from the Black River. This drone footage shows an aerial view of the flooded area. One day after this footage was taken, the National Weather Service in Memphis issued a flash flood warning on May 3, describing a levee failure along the Black River that would cause additional flooding in Pocahontas and other areas across Eastern Randolph and Lawrence counties.

      Amazing, all the destruction from the floodwaters. The last time I visited Pocahontas was in 1964, my Grandparents lived there. Things have changed tremendously. Thank's for sharing this video.
