The weather service says crops and pasturelands could flood between Shady Point and Arkoma in eastern Oklahoma near the Arkansas border.

The National Weather Service issued flash flood warnings Wednesday for much of Arkansas — including the Little Rock metro area — as rainfall continues to inundate the state.

Forecasters say flash flooding is likely in central Arkansas, where several roads are closed because of high water. Authorities say they've received reports of flooding on Crystal Hill Road in North Little Rock and along Baseline Road in southwest Little Rock.

In northern Arkansas, flash flooding is predicted in Clinton, Mountain Home and Heber Springs. Forecasters warn that the valleys in the Ozark Mountains are dangerous during periods of heavy rain. Forecasters also warn of flash flooding in northwest Arkansas.

In southern Arkansas, a flash flooding warning was issued for the Huttig area in eastern Union County.

The National Weather Service in Kansas City issued a flood warning Wednesday morning for  Moniteau Creek near Fayette, Missouri. The warning is in effect until Thursday afternoon.  

The heavy rains took out a bridge southeast of Oklahoma City. But a group of residents left cut off by the washed out bridge are getting help from people they don't even know.
