Flash flood warning issued - Hot Springs
A pickup truck is stranded in high water on Central Avenue at Files Road shortly after noon on Thursday due to flooding on Central.

A portion of Central Avenue in south Hot Springs was closed due to flooding, and Garland County was placed under a flash flood warning until 2:30 p.m. due to high amounts of rainfall.

The National Weather Service said that, at 12:26 p.m., Doppler radar indicated heavy rain across the warned area. Up to two inches of rain have already fallen. Flash flooding is likely to occur.

“There is widespread flooding in the Hot Springs area. Please do not attempt to cross flooded roadways,” Hot Springs police said on their Facebook page.

“We have the area of Central and Files road shut down at this time,” the post said.

“Please slow down and use caution.”
