LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - No major damage has been reported as the storm system that struck southwest Missouri skirted the northern part of Arkansas.

The Arkansas Department of Emergency Management says it's received no reports of damages as of 6 a.m. Wednesday.

The National Weather Service says a wall cloud was reported in Cherokee Village early Wednesday and that trees were on the roadways. In Clay County in northeastern Arkansas, spotters reported hail the size of golf balls, while half-dollar-sized hail was reported in Mountain Home.

Wind with gusts of up to 60 mph was reported in northwest Arkansas as the storm made its way across the state.

In southwest Missouri, one person died and dozens were injured when the storm struck. Branson's popular downtown district was also hit, damaging the city's famous theaters.
