    Today's THV reporter Faith Abubey was live this morning in Glenwood. She talked with Bridgette Williams of the American Red Cross about the search for flood victims. Click on the video icon for more.

    Arkansas State Police spokesman Bill Sadler and the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management say the search resumed at 6:30 a.m. 

    At least 16 people have been confirmed dead in Arkansas flooding, including a number of children.

    Heavy rains dumped more than a half-foot of rain on the area in southwest Arkansas. The Little Missouri climbed 20 feet within a four-hour period overnight, trapping many campers.

    Crews plan to use ATVs, canoes and horses to search for missing people. The effort is expected to take several more days -- and perhaps even weeks.

    American Red Cross has set up a Safe and Well website where flood survivors are registering. Anyone looking for a loved one can log on there to check on family members.

    The Albert Pike Campground has also been temporarily closed by Ouachita National Forest officials.
