Arkansas State Offices Closed Thursday in Little Rock Metropolitan Area
LITTLE ROCK - With the heavy snow freezing overnight and little, if any, melting expected tomorrow, Governor Mike Beebe has ordered Little Rock area state offices to remain closed on Thursday. Decisions about other state offices will be made by agency directors and area supervisors.
Governor Beebe released $25,000 from the Governor's Disaster Fund on Wednesday to help the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management with response to the winter storm. Arkansas National Guard troops have been on the interstates throughout the day assisting the Arkansas State Police and helping stranded motorists.
The State of Emergency declared in conjunction with last week's winter weather remains in effect this week.
