July 11, 2013

LITTLE ROCK — An independent report blames manufacturing defects for the failure of an ExxonMobil pipeline that sent 150,000 gallons of crude oil into the small town of Mayflower, the company said Wednesday.

The report, provided to Exxon and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, found cracks near a seam that failed on the ruptured Pegasus Pipeline, the company said. Both Exxon and the regulatory agency declined to release the report, which was produced by Hurst Metallurgical Research Laboratory Inc.

Saline County still at moderate wildfire risk

July 11, 2013

Although the county received about a half inch of rain on Wednesday afternoon, rainfall is still well below average right now.
The shower brought the precipitation total for the past 30 days up to 0.71 inches. The average monthly rainfall for this time of year is generally about 4 inches, according to the National Weather Service.
The average is based on rainfall totals gathered during a 30-year period, from 1981-2010.
Due to the lack of rain, Saline County is under a moderate wildfire risk.
Saline County also is still one of 16 Arkansas counties still under a burn ban.
