Mike Loftin said, "Most of the roads coming into Felsenthal are closed, the county, we're up here working on the old rail road tram trying to make sure it's passable."
Loftin says he's making sure the road is passable for folks like Larry Norwood who could be flooded out at any moment.
Norwood said, "It's already in that one, it's fixing to go in that one and then mines next."
Norwood says his mother and aunt live in the trailers next to his and they've already flooded. Now he and his wife are packing up their things before it's too late.
Norwood said, "Put everything on high ground, what we can't move we putting up on cinderblocks."
"This is the Ouachita River and it's already into what used to be a campsite and officials here in Felsenthal say as the river rises even more homes could go under."
Mayor Lester Lancaster says the high river levels will continue to pour into the town. He says he hopes the water falls soon, but there's no way to estimate when that will be. Meanwhile folks like Norwood are doing what they can to leave, even though he says it's not the first time.
Norwood said, "We knew it was going to happen. Everyone in Felsenthal knows what Felsenthal does, so you live here and cope with it or you don't live here."
