Remnants of Dennis Could Bring High Winds to Northeast Arkansas

JULY 11, 2005 - Posted at 7:32 a.m. CDT

JONESBORO, AR - Residents of Northeast Arkansas are being warned about possible high winds and heavy rain that could sweep through the region today. The National Weather Service says the region will feel some of the effects of being on the fringe of what used to be Hurricane Dennis. The storm made landfall yesterday in the Florida Panhandle, and then headed north.

The weather service says some of the winds on the fringe of the storm could be felt in Northeast Arkansas today. The agency issued a wind advisory for the area, and said winds could increase to levels as high as 25 to 35 miles per hour, with gusts up to 40 miles per hour. The weather service also issued a flash-flood watch for the area, but later cancelled the watch, saying rains would not be as heavy as once had been thought.
