US Article Summary and Analysis Summary Mike Von Fremd, Cole Kazdin, and Imaeyen Ibanga of the ABC News focus on torrential rains that are poised to cause the worst flooding the state has seen in a quarter century. They state that Arkansas levees proved no match for these rains, and the continuous flood fights the Midwest must endure. According to The Associated press, the Black River sliced through a 60-year-old levee before emergency workers could stem the tide with a mountain of sandbags on March 20 th . During that same week, rains submerged parts of the Midwest, and though the rains may have ceased, the rivers continued cresting and causing massive damage the following week. “The destruction has been staggering, like near St. Louis where waters swallowed intersections and fierce floods swept home off their foundations. The rushing water even carried off one home and smashed it into a bridge” (Fremd, Kazdin, Ibanga).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
