    Most of you have probably seen this in the national news. I've been to this campground a few times. I didn't know any of the victims. Many have not been and may never be found. Terrible.

    I've been to that campground a few times.... I've woke up a few times because my tent was suddenly full of water, Flash floods are dangerous.

    This is awful news xsited1, and I did think of you when I saw it, since I knew you lived in Arkansas.

    Prayers to the familes.

    Thank you. The Ouachita National Forest is beautiful, especially this time of year. I'm surprised the water levels increased so fast.

    Arkies and former Arkies. I've never been to that campground, but I know quite a few folks in the area. So sad.
