The Arkansas State Park Authority says the city of Little Rock is dealing with a “major” water shortage after the icy conditions last night caused a large amount of ice to form in parks.
Arkansas State Park spokesperson Kevin McCarty says the situation is a “serious emergency,” with crews working to clear the park.
The state park authority says they have received several reports of people taking the ice out of the park and placing it in their vehicles, and that it is an ongoing problem.
McCarty says ice is falling all over the city.
The park authority is asking for patience while crews clear the city, which is in the midst of a major snowstorm.
Arkansans have been warned to keep out of their parks during the storm.
The city’s website says it is open on Sunday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.r.m., and will close at 11 p.c.
The Arkansas State Parks Authority says there are no public transportation options in the city because of the ice situation.
They say drivers are urged to use alternate routes.
McCrarty says people should not drive alone on public roadways during the icy weather.
