The Salty Parrot, a party barge on the Arkansas River owned by the city of North Little Rock and leased to the Mississippi Riverboat Company, is taking on water this hour. This photo was taken by Today’s THV’s Charles Crowson at around 7:10 a.m. Thursday.

Today’s THV’s report is available here. Video is available here. Our ArkansasBusiness.com report here.

Update: Scott Miller’s Agenta News has more on the Salty Parrot and the city’s recent expenditures on the barge, as well as its plans for future use. All that, of course, before today’s “maritime disaster.”
