Water floods Regional Park on Thursday afternoon as a thunderstorm drops rain on an already saturated landscape. Hydrologists are expecting the Arkansas River at Pine Bluff to rise until Friday night or early Saturday morning. Regional Park is closed because of the flooding. If the river crests as high as hydrologists are expecting, it would be the fifth-highest flood level in Pine Bluff’s recorded history. (Pine Bluff Commercial/David Hutter)
