'It's just a mess' | Pond levee breaks in north-central Arkansas, official says

For full details.


An embankment collapse caused a mudslide in a residential area near the Little Red River in north-central Arkansas on Wednesday morning, officials said.

Five houses are said to have been affected in the area of Dripping Springs Road and Landing Drive in Pangburn, according to Dan Noble, a spokesman for the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management.

Noble had initially said that as many as 10 homes in the area were affected after a riverbank collapsed. Officials on scene said later it appeared a bank of nearby body of water collapsed, sending a muddy flow through the residential area and into the river.

No one was reported hurt, and the extent of damage was not immediately known. The collapse was reported before 8:30 a.m.

"It's just a mess," Noble said, adding that trees were downed and roads were "messed up" because of the collapse.

The state's Emergency Management Department had said earlier that homes were evacuated but later noted that it was not immediately clear whether residents were told to leave.

PHOTOS: 'State of the art' $60M marina development under construction near downtown Little Rock

If John Burkhalter had been told 14 years ago what he would go through before he could turn dirt on the first phase of what will be a $60 million marina development on the Little Rock bank of the Arkansas River, he said his response would have been, "No, thanks."

"It has been a long journey," Burkhalter said.

But boaters on the river will be able to find safe harbor on their own journeys at the Rock City Yacht Club as soon as this summer, thanks, Burkhalter said, to a "finish what you start" ethos that his parents, Frank and Loyce Ann Burkhalter, instilled in him as a boy.

"I am tired of talking about it," he said. "I am ready to finish it."

The first phase of what Burkhalter said will be a "state of the art" marina includes 154 of the eventual 258 boat slips, a public-access boat ramp and park, fueling station, restrooms and a dock store.

Construction is expected to begin this summer on 176 luxury apartments along with additional slips and a restaurant.
