Flooding perpetuates disease

Alongside historic flooding pounding parts of Arkansas and Mississippi, officials are now worried about not just about structural damage, but the spread of diseased waters.

Officials recommend not allowing children to play in or around the water, nor with toys that have come in contact with the water. Also, this should be obvious, don’t drink the water, they say.

In Praire County, a slew of tetanus shots are being passed out while waiting for flood waters to abate, according to Arkansas News.
