[ARCHIVED] City warns against parking along downtown Central Avenue Aug. 27-28


Due to the possibility of flooding in downtown Hot Springs as a result of Hurricane Laura on Thursday and Friday, Aug. 27-28, the City of Hot Springs Fire and Police departments are discouraging the use of the parking spaces downtown on Central Avenue.

Vehicles should be parked on side streets or in the Exchange Street Parking Plaza.

Vehicles can be swept away in one foot of water and a person of small stature can be swept away in less than an inch of water. Cars that are swept away by flood waters cause damage to nearby surroundings, such as breaking windows, colliding with other vehicles or buildings, and can even hit people.
