Hot Springs Village, Arkansas – Following the tornado on Thursday night, a Hot Springs Village community radio station is stepping up to keep people informed and safe.

On Friday, reporters inside The Village’s gates opened their phones to provide residents with real-time information on the EF-2 tornado’s aftermath.
