Stormy Saturday's See It Snap It Send It

REGION 8 (KAIT) - People around Region 8 experienced some severe weather Saturday evening.  As the storms rolled across Arkansas and neighboring states, KAIT viewers took their cameras, phones and other devices and took some excellent photos of what exactly was going on.

From the hail to the rain to a lightening strike just feet from one man as he video-recorded his back yard, nature's wrath was seen in full force and not just by Region 8 News staff.

In the attached video file, you can see some of the photos that were sent in as well as some video.

Remember, in breaking news situations, we always want you to send photos to us so we can share them with others across Region 8.  Behind the scenes, we call it SI SI SI...but you know it as See It Snap It Send It and we want you to remember it during breaking situations.  You may even end up on the air, like some of our viewers did.

But always remember, before you pull the camera out to snap a quick pic, keep safety in mind.  As the video report shows, severe weather can strike dangerously close and you may not be as lucky as one viewer was when lightening hit just feet away.
