Up to 13 inches of rainfall in Arkansas washed out bridges, swept away cars and forced hundreds of people to flee to higher ground Sunday, while an overburdened dam in north-central Texas was sinking and feared to be near collapse. The downpour dumped more than 12 inches of rain in Hot Springs, Ark., and left some roads under water 7 feet deep. In the downtown area, automobiles floated down streets and crashed into storefronts, authorities said.

Quarterback Herb Tyler was so efficient on third and long for Louisiana State against Arkansas on Friday that third and 16 and third and 10 seemed more like third and inches. He converted four consecutive long-yardage situations with his passes, and the defense gave up only three first downs in the first half as the 19th-ranked Tigers beat the Razorbacks, 17-7, in a Southeastern Conference game.

Isaac may have caused -- and still be causing -- misery on the Gulf Coast, but its arrival over the middle Mississippi Valley is welcome relief for drought-stricken farmers. The tropical depression is expected to dump up to 8 inches of rain over Arkansas and Missouri before heading into the Ohio River Valley over the weekend. "We've got a much-needed rainfall," said Tommy Jackson of the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management. David Miskus, a meteorologist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Climate Prediction Center, said that a slow, steady rain would improve drought conditions . "I had 2 ½ inches in my rain gauge, and I didn't even have a puddle in my yard," Shane McElroy, an Arkansas cattle rancher, said in an interview.

A bit like Santa crashing through the roof, snow is expected to make a not-entirely-welcome appearance across the U.S. on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. More than 93 million people will travel an average of 760 miles during the holidays, according to AAA , the motorists' organization, and will encounter challenging weather across the country. Some parts of Oklahoma, northern Arkansas and southern Missouri could see up to 6 inches of snow on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, according to AccuWeather.
