Flood waters Tuesday night forced authorities to close a road south of Interstate 10 in Palm Springs.

North Indian Canyon Road south of the interstate and north of Tramview Road was closed, the Palm Springs Police Department said.

The road is in a wash area. Police were investigating whether the water was coming from a levee near Whitewater. The California Highway Patrol reported the road closed shortly before 9 p.m.

No other details were immediately available.

[Updated 10:41 p.m.: Police said no water had crossed Indian Canyon Road but are advising motorists to stay away from the area because of the potential for significant flooding.]
