A flash flood struck a popular campground regions at Albert Pike. At least 12 have been found dead and many more are missing. While this tragedy occurred outside the "foot print" of Smoaky.com, I fear it will be felt within our community. This is a popular site for residents in the Texarkana area to camp.

 

Keep the victims, their families and rescuers in your prayers.

My prayers are with everyone involved in this tragedy. When I was growing up my family had a small cabin there. I have not been to Albert Pike in years, but know the camping area very well.

 

May God grant strength to all the families involved.
