In addition to flooding, snow, ice, tornadoes and heavy rain, Arkansas has also suffered the wrath of tropical storm remnants even though it is not a coastal state. Back in 2008, the streets in Arkansas were full of debris, buildings damaged, bridges and other forms of infrastructure damaged as a result of the effects of tornadoes and storms linked to Hurricane Gustav.
In 2011, the state was devastated by the flooding of the Mississippi River, which lines its border to the east.
