JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A line of strong storms are moving through Region 8 and, in some areas, interesting images are captured.

The line stretches from Baxter County to Mississippi County.

One image sent to Region 8 News is from Greene County Sheriff David Carter.

Meteorologist Justin Logan has seen the image and identified it as a possible tropical funnel cloud.

He says they rarely touchdown and you often see them in tropical environments like we are experiencing now.

You should go indoors until these storms pass.

Butler County did experience some localized flooding from the storms. 

They got around 4 inches of rain in just a few hours. 

According to the sheriff's office, several of the county roads had water over them.
