Overnight Storms Leave Trail of Damage Across Natural State

MAY 10, 2006 - Posted at 7:56 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Storms across Arkansas overnight left a trail of damage, including fallen trees, roof damage and power outages affecting at least 25,000 customers.

Another line of severe thunderstorms is moving through the state this morning.

The National Weather Service says trees were blown down in places from southwest Arkansas to as far north as Mountain Home.  A Federal Express truck was blown into the median of Interstate 530 near Redfield and three-quarter inch hail fell at Batesville and Dardanelle.

A train derailed at Wabbaseka east of Pine Bluff.  Jefferson County officials say two mobile homes were badly damaged.

Entergy Arkansas says the storms, as of 5 a.m., caused about 25,000 power outages.  Spokesman James Thompson says the greatest number of outages is in Pine Bluff, where 6,000 customers are out.

Thompson says Malvern has 4,900 outages; Little Rock has 3,600; Stuttgart 3,500; Russellville 1,600 and 1,200 each in Jacksonville and Marion.  The rest of the outages are scattered south of Little Rock.

Their numbers don't take into account any damage from the storm line now moving over the state.
