CARLISLE, AR - MAY 08: A truck takes a detour off Interstate 40 to avoid a stretch of the highway flooded by the White River May 8, 2011 near Carlisle, Arkansas. Motorists were forced to take a two-hour detour to avoid the closed nine-mile flooded stretch of road. Heavy rains have left the ground saturated, rivers swollen, and have caused widespread flooding in Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Arkansas. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images) less
