I-40 in Arkansas closed; high water; big detour

Anyone traveling via I-40 thru Arkansas should be aware of this:

The Mississippi is predicted to crest in Memphis on Wednesday, May 11th at about 48 feet.

All the rain is going north of us.... all of Texas is in very serious drought...with lots of fires as a result and crop loss.... the rain we usually get is floating by and dropping on those areas that do not need or want anymore... very bad all around....

Don't forget the "melt" in Colorado has not started yet.
I read it's still snowing up there.

If it were up to me, I'd post it in ALL the forums.
anybody driving any type of vehicle in that area should know about it.

It belongs in the " Sympathy/Empathy " section.... and perhaps " FEAR " section also... depending on where you live...
