JONESBORO, AR - Today's heavy rains brought much-needed relief to many Craighead County farmers, but it also brought some headaches inside the Jonesboro city limits. 

Street flooding was experienced in many neighborhoods and business districts, including downtown, where one newly-opened business also reported water inside the building.  Julio's Mexican Restaurant & Bar, which opened approximately two months ago on Main Street, has water inside the underground facility at this hour, according to co-owner Julio Diaz.  Julio's is located beneath street level at 311B South Main Street.

K8 News has a crew at the scene and will have more information on this breaking story as it becomes available.
