FRANCIS COUNTY, Ark. — As the St. Francis River creeps closer to cresting, several roads are underwater and some people are using boats to get around after their homes were cut off from dry land. Gerry Waddell lives on Highway 50 just east of Madison in St. Francis County. His home and several of his neighbors’ homes were only accessible by boat Friday afternoon. He’s been watching all week with his wife, his two kids and his four dogs as the water edges closer and closer to the house and now plans to evacuate since he fears the water could go inside his home. “I don’t want to wake up with cold feet. I’m gonna get up out of here while I got a chance,” he said.
