Folks in Pine Bluff like Donald Denson are left dealing with debris clean-up from flash flooding on Friday.
"Earlier today it really caught me by surprise," Denson added. "The water came up into my yard, but luckily it didn't flood my home."
Heavy rains from the tail of Tropical Depression Isaac dumped a downpour, leading to roadways of rushing runoff and water-logged lawns.
"It's been real crazy," said Denson's neighbor Kevin Lindsey. "It's been raining yesterday since about 12 until about 12 today."
The rain eventually turned from sprinkles to severe, with a tornado warning at the draw of dusk, just when everyone expected the worst was behind them.
"It's really strange, the tornado warning and everything," Denson said. "I wasn't expecting all this, but it could have been worse."
Some are seeing harder hits. The Chester Hynes Community Center now had water damage to a $50,000 unfinished gym floor, thanks to a leak in the roof.
"We're going to see a damaged floor. We're going to see a floor in need of repair," said concerned citizen Peter Daniels. "If we get more rain, the management here is going to try to catch it in buckets. But to assume someone can sit here all night and try to move those around just isn't feasible."
As workers keep an eye on drips from the ceiling there, Denson will be watching for what more Mother Nature may have in store.
"Usually, I don't pay much attention to the weather," he said, "but since it's taken a change for the worse I have to keep up with it and be ready to do whatever is necessary."
He's hoping nothing more will be necessary.
"I'm thankful for the rain. The farmers need it, and the community needed it," Denson said. "But the rest, I'm ready to see go. The tornado warnings and all that. They can just move along."
