Many ice prone areas in central Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Many of these slick prone locations have one of two factors; either they're more exposed to elements like a bridge or overpass or run over hilly terrain.

Benton Police say slick prone spots other than I-30 overpasses include Edison Avenue and Highway Five in the northeastern part of the city.

I-30 travelers hit a flood of wrecks Wednesday morning. Benton police and state troopers reported 19 wrecks within about two hours around 10 a.m.

"...Started getting bad really quick especially on bridges and overpasses," said Lt. Kevin Russell.

Russell says precipitation took the area off guard and that left the department scrambling for reinforcements to cover the crash volume.

"We had to have officers from our detective division, training and support services actually go out and assist with the call load," said Russell.

Frigid temps push Compassion Center to make more room for homeless

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - "I think each year we're seeing more and more homeless people," Pastor William Holloway of the Little Rock Compassion Center explains.

The Compassion Center is preparing for the bone chilling temperatures expected to hit central Arkansas this coming weekend. Pastor Holloway continues, "We got 200 beds and when we run out of beds we got a hundred mats and then we can put another hundred on the kitchen floor in the dining area and have another hundred people with just blankets and pillows."

In weather like this, medical doctors urge people to take precaution. Dr. Wendell Pahls of Baptist Health Medical Center says, "It can be very dangerous particularly for people in the south when they're unaccustomed to being exposed to cold weather. You can freeze to death in 30 degree weather. It depends on the persons survival skills. It depends on the amount of body fat they have. It depends on the type of clothing."

Arkansas Hwy Dept. plans for slick travel

January 3, 2014 (KTHV) - Parts of the state are making preparations for a snowy weekend. The Arkansas Highway Department held a conference call today to make plans for hazardous travel conditions.

Northwestern Arkansas was already hit yesterday with slick roads.

Right now, we're just dealing with cold temperatures, but with that weather on the way, the highway department is on standby should they be needed to help clear roads.

Crews have restocked their equipment and are ready to roll this weekend, if needed.

However, the Arkansas Highway and Travel Department said crews will not be able to pre-treat before the weather starts.

"We're not going to be able to pre-treat in several areas because of a lot of that anticipated rain. If we were to pre-treat and you have a heavy rain, it will tend to wash off any pre-treatment you put onto the roadway," said Danny Straessle, AHTD spokesman.
