ARKANSAS (KFSM) -- Widespread flooding throughout the viewing area on Wednesday morning (April 26) has caused several road closures and prompted swift water rescues.

Fayetteville firefighters rescued a person who got stranded on an air mattress along South School Avenue. Several people were trapped on a jungle gym at Greathouse Park along the Razorback Greenway. Luckily nobody was injured.

Several low-water bridges have water completely covering the road. Anyone who comes across a bridge covered in water, like the one below in Little Flock, should turn around.

Highway 112 by Sam's Club was shut down because the road was completely underwater. Similarly Gregg Avenue is also closed for flooding from Joyce Boulevard to Van Asche Drive.

Part of Blue Springs Road is missing after it washed away in the morning flooding near where the road crosses Beaver Lake. The road, which is near Goshen, will be closed until Washington County road crews can fill in the road.

Main Drive in Johnson closed after Clear Creek covered the road.

In Crawford County, West Rodeo Crossing in Natural Dam is also closed after the pass was flooded with water. Road crews are stationed at both sides of the crossing, turning drivers away.

 

In Cedarville, a bridge on Thompson Lane is also flooded. Although there are no signs blocking the road, drivers should not attempt to cross the flooded bridge.

Riverside Park in West Fork is shut down, and the playground is completely underwater.
