Fallen Tree Punctures Home, Smashes Mini Van After Flash Flooding In Hot Springs Saturday

Heavy rain and thunderstorms caused area streams to flow rapidly Saturday in Garland County. In the picture Gulpha Creek at the Gulpha Gorge Campground was flowing at full blast Saturday afternoon while most campers at the park stayed indoors to keep dry.

The heavy rain also likely played a big part in a large oak tree falling onto a house around 6pm Saturday. The tree in the yard at 128 Watt Street uprooted and fell against the roof and onto Linwood Street.

The fallen tree did not appear to puncture the roof but smashed a mini van parked at the residence. No one inside the residence was injured. Hot Springs Police and Fire Department responded to the scene and barricades were put up in the area to keep vehicles from traveling through.
