    Heavy rain is causing a repeat of flooding last month on many of the state's rivers. Residents weary of weeks of flooding may be forced from their homes again. The National Weather Service says water levels on the Arkansas River will be higher than those experienced in March. The river will crest above flood stage from Dardanelle downstream through Pine Bluff. At Ozark Lock & Dam, the Arkansas will crest near 363.3 feet, six feet above flood stage. The river will crest at 37.5 feet Friday morning at Dardanelle, over five feet above flood stage. Major flooding is forecast on the Arkansas at Morrilton. The river will reach nearly 39 feet Friday afternoon, nine feet above flood stage. The river will crest Friday evening at Toad Suck, reaching about three and a half feet above flood stage. At Little Rock, the Arkansas River will reach 23.3 feet. Flood stage is 23 feet. The river reached 22 feet last month. The USS Razorback submarine and maritime musuem will be closed due to high water. The river will crest at 44.7 feet Sunday morning at Pine Bluff, above the 42 foot flood stage. The river rose to 42.8 feet in March.
