PINE BLUFF, Ark. – Flooding has prompted a change of venue for the Jan. 11 rice and soybean production meeting in Jefferson County.

The meeting had been set for the Waterfront Building at the county’s Regional Park in Pine Bluff, however, flooding prompted organizers to move the meeting to the Donald W. Reynolds Center at 300 W. 2nd Avenue, Anthony Whittington, Jefferson County extension agent for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture, said Monday.

Heavy rains between Christmas and New Year’s generated major flooding along the Arkansas River at Pine Bluff. The river was expected to slip below the “major” flooding designation later this week.
