Avoiding fraud with 'Got Your Back, Arkansas'

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (March 20, 2012) - The Arkansas Attorney General's office has launched a new consumer education and awareness initiative, "Got Your Back, Arkansas," to equip Arkansans with the information they need to navigate the consumer marketplace and avoid scams and fraud.

"As the state's chief consumer advocate, I have a responsibility to provide Arkansans with the tips and tools they need to make better decisions as consumers," McDaniel said. "Our new website is a user-friendly resource that offers valuable information about common consumer issues. And, in those instances where a consumer needs someone to mediate on his or her behalf, then the Arkansas consumer should know that we've got your back."

Water on the roads: Turn around, don't drown

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- With heavy rainfall in Arkansas expected this week, it is important to remember a few flood safety facts. Floods are one of the most common hazards in the United States. Nearly half of all flood fatalities are vehicle-related according to the National Weather Service.

The Arkansas Department of Emergency Management (ADEM) urges people to learn the dangers of driving into flooded roadways because drivers often underestimate the power of floodwater. Roads weaken under floodwater and drivers should proceed cautiously after waters have receded, since the road may collapse under the weight of the vehicle.

Corp lifts small craft advisory on Arkansas River

CORPS LIFTS SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY ON ARKANSAS RIVER

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Army Corps of Engineers has lifted the small craft advisory on the Arkansas River. 

Before setting out in a pleasure craft, always check flow conditions.  Corps officials urge boaters to always use caution on the river.  Wear a life jacket, and never operate a boat while intoxicated.  Give commercial towboats an extra wide berth for safety's sake.  They are heavier than freight trains and not nearly as maneuverable as pleasure boats.  It can take a towboat more than a half mile to stop.

Advisories are issued when flows reach 70,000 cubic feet per second.  Currents become swifter and stronger, and large debris is carried downstream.
