HOT SPRINGS, Ark (KTHV) -- Entergy Arkansas is lowering the levels of Lake Hamilton and Lake Catherine as a precaution in preparation of Isaac.

Hot Springs Public Works Director Denny McPhate says they tested their flood warning system in downtown Hot Springs Wednesday afternoon.

"We're going to do an audible and then we'll do a voice that says it's a test. Ready to go!" says McPhate.

It's a sound he wants to hear Wednesday because he and his crew are making sure emergency signal is ready for storms -- and flooding-- like Isaac could bring to Hot Springs.
