12 Dead in Camp Albert Pike, Arkansas

According to the Associated Press, flash floods caused the Caddo and Little Missouri rivers in Arkansas to rise by 20 feet Thursday night, killing at least 12 people in the Camp Albert Pike area, in the Ouachita Mountains. Later estimates rose to 16 people missing or dead.

Camp Albert Pike is indeed named after Confederate General and Masonic author Albert Pike, as is the nearby town of Albert.
