Storms, Flooding Causing Damage in White County

NOVEMBER 1, 2004 - Posted at 1:36 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Heavy rains continue to fall in parts of Arkansas at this hour.  In areas where severe storms rolled through this morning, trees and power lines fell, and some roads were flooded.

A tornado watch covers much of the southeastern part of the state.

In Searcy, where flash flood flooding occured, water was reported having gotten into some buildings at Harding University.

In Yellville and Stephens, officials reported some thunderstorm destruction, a home was damaged and animals were killed in Ouachita County.

A Dallas County dispatcher said a barn had blown across Arkansas 9, but no one was injured.

The National Weather Service in North Little Rock says it has no confirmation of tornado touchdowns.  The storms could weaken as time progresses.

Rain is forecast to continue through tomorrow's voting.
