Storms Bring Damage to Parts of Natural State

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Storms that moved across Arkansas have left wind damage in spots across the state.  The main storm system has cleared the state's eastern border, though scattered thunderstorms are possible today over parts of Arkansas.

Yesterday and into this morning, tornado warnings were issued for points as far west as Polk and Scott counties and as far as east as Crittenden County.

The National Weather Service reports scattered damage, including part of the roof blowing off the gym at Pine Bluff Dollarway High School.  No one was hurt, and school is open today.

Damage to homes was reported in Lincoln County, where six trailers were rendered uninhabitable and trees and power lines are down.

Trees were blown down, with some causing power outages, in Calhoun, Cleveland, Grant, Jefferson, Pike, Pulaski and Saline counties.

Entergy Arkansas reported power was out to 1,500 customers last night.
