— A report on the flash flood of the Little Missouri River that killed 20 in southwestern Arkansas is expected within two months.

U.S. Geological Service flood specialist Robert Holmes told the Texarkana Gazette that the study is getting extra technical scrutiny because of the magnitude of the flood and number of people killed.

The June 11, 2010, flash flood killed 20 people at the Albert Pike Recreation Area near Langley as the waters rose more than 20 feet in five hours.

The U.S.G.S. sent a team of scientists to document and study the flow and height of the floodwater in an effort to reconstruct the flood.

Holmes said the goal is to “minimize the impacts of future floods.”
