    As of now, responders have found 16 dead at the Albert Pike Recreational Campgrounds.

    In a press release, the Rice Depot says they have flood buckets available and emergency meal kits for those affected. Disaster workers are also on the scene to help in any way they can.

    They are also asking for volunteers to assemble disaster kits and other emergency supplies. An array of suggested emergency kit contents is listed here. Call 501-565-8855 for more information.

    The Salvation Army is working to establish an incident command center in the Langley Post Office. They have been asked to provide food and emotional support to both first responders and flood victims.

    You can also view a list on the South Arkansas Red Cross's Web site called "Safe and Well." There, survivors of any disaster can list themselves as safe and well, and concerned family and friends can search the list of those who have registered themselves as "safe and well."

    Congressman Mike Ross says that family members looking for information on loved ones can call the Red Cross (501) 748-1010.
