Arkansas State University

    Arkansas State University has conducted a full assessment of damage that was sustained after record flooding hit Jonesboro and much of Craighead County May 24th.  Between four to six inches of rain fell in a few hours, causing extensive damage to parts of the campus.  Executive Director of Marketing and Communications at Arkansas State is Dr. Bill Smith.  Smith says the turf field at Centennial Bank Stadium will have to be replaced.

Rains have caused rivers to swell, and flood warnings are in effect. KASU's Johnathan Reaves files this report.

After historic river flooding in April, the Imperial Dinner Theatre in Pocahontas is being renovated and getting ready for a grand re-opening in early 2012.  KASU's Johnathan Reaves talks about it with Kelly Grooms, Artistic Director of Studio of the Arts in Pocahontas.
