The chief of enforcement for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission says there's no sign that a wildlife officer and the Scott County sheriff violated regulations when they tried to rescue two women during a flash flood May 31.
Game officer Joel Campora, Sheriff Cody Carpenter and the two women died, along with a fifth person, after the Fourche LaFave River surged after heavy rains fell near Y City.
Funeral services have been scheduled for an Arkansas Game and Fish Commission wildlife officer who died while trying to help rescue two women from rising floodwaters.
Commission spokesman Keith Stephens said in a Wednesday news release that services for Wildlife Officer 1st Class Joel Campora will be at 1 p.m. Friday at the Waldron High School football field. Stephens says Game and Fish Commission commissioners plan to attend the service.
Campora died alongside Scott County Sheriff Cody Carpenter last Friday while trying to save the women from flash floods.
Maintenance crews are working to restore power to multiple homes after severe weather swept through the state Wednesday evening, officials said Thursday.
The cold front produced a series of thunderstorms and tornadoes across several portions of Arkansas, leaving more than 10,000 residents without power. The outages were caused primarily by lightning and high winds that accompanied the storms, which subsided by Thursday morning.
