LITTLE ROCK — Gov. Asa Hutchinson on Tuesday added Sebastian, Jefferson, Conway and Perry counties to a disaster declaration he first issued last month.


The governor said he added the counties because of damage caused by heavy rains and flooding. He has now declared disasters in 31 counties because of storms, tornadoes, rains and flooding that began May 8.


The counties previously included in the disaster declaration are Crawford, Franklin, Logan, Johnson, Scott, Polk, Yell, Madison, Faulkner, Pope, Newton, Marion, Searcy, Izard, Independence, Montgomery, Garland, Sevier, Howard, Pike, Little River, Hempstead, Nevada, Ouachita, Chicot, Lafayette and Miller.


Michael and Melissa Mooneyhan were killed when a tornado struck the mobile home park where they lived in Nashville on May 10.


The National Weather Service says there is little, if any, chance of additional rain in Arkansas this week, but levels on some rivers are continuing to rise as water from recent heavy rains continues to flow into them.
