Fort Smith Victimized by Latest Round of Stormy Weather in Arkansas

APRIL 7, 2006 - Posted at 7:56 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Initial reports of damage are minimal in Sebastian and Boone counties after high winds and severe thunderstorms moved through last night.

Trees and powerlines are reportedly down in southern Sebastian County, and KFSM in Fort Smith said there was a rotation in the wind south of Hacket near the Oklahoma border.  It wasn't immediately clear if there was a tornado.

Tornado sirens were sounded in Sebastian County, and also in Boone County to the northeast near Missouri.  Hail was reported in both regions.

The storms came less than a week after an outbreak of tornadoes tore across several states, including Arkansas.  Marmaduke in Greene County was devastated by Sunday's storms, and more than two dozen were killed in other states.
