FORT PAYNE, Ala. (WHNT)- According to the National Park Service, Little River, which gives Little River Canyon its name, set a record water flow on Monday.

A post on the park’s Facebook page says a record of more than 11,000 cubic feet per second was set around 11 a.m. on Monday.   That broke the previous record of 4,300 set in 1964.

    That can’t be accurate. We have had many storms that produce similar volumes of water like yesterday since 1964. In fact the flood that washed out most of the bridges including around the canyon in the early 1980s created a water level so high there was only a small hump at Little Falls.
