Heavy rain causes local flooding

BENTON, Ark. (KTHV) - Heavy rain in central Arkanasas is causing flood issues in low lying areas of the state, especially those near lakes and rivers.

THV11 has been receiving reports of street flooding in Benton and Bryant, which have caused roads to close in different areas.

Boone Road has been closed to traffic, and other streets in the area are partially covered in water due to the large amount of rainfall in the past 24 hours.

With more rainfall expected, the National Weather Service is advising motorist to not drive through flooded areas.

Remember to turn around...don't drown.
