Roads in LawCo.
suffer from rain

Lawrence County Judge Dale Freeman said the county roads are the worst he's seen them since he's been in office.

Mid last week, heavy rains blasted Northeast Arkansas, and since then water has continued to flow through the county's waterways. The western side of the county was hit the hardest with many roads washed out.

On Monday, all graders were operating in the western side of the county. On Tuesday, a few were allocated back to the Eastern side to work on some roads, which were still under water as of Monday.

Typically, the county has been able to fall back on FEMA funds when rains have caused massive washouts. However, Freeman said he had been informed that money would most likely not be available at this time. While he said this might change, he isn't counting on the FEMA funds coming through.

"It's going to be pretty expensive for the county," Freeman said.
