The National Weather Service is investigating the direct hit of a possible tornado in Mansfield, LA that may have hit the International Paper plant.

This weekend temperatures in Region 8 are expected to reach 100 degrees. To help you and your pets beat the heat, the American Red Cross offers these tips.

With many out and about on lunch hour, a near-derecho force squall line with 80+ MPH winds slammed through NE Arkansas and the MO Bootheel, leaving behind damage that few have seen from straight line winds.
