Channel 4 has film
from Mountain Harbor, the Lake Ouachita resort near Mount Ida, where yesterday's storm did heavy damage to docks and boats kept there.

No one was hurt. Access is limited today as cleanup begins.

UPDATE: The state Department of Correction reports damage at two units. The Delta Regional Unit in Dermott reported damage to the roof, gym, utility buildings and interior fencing. Two-thirds of the unit's vehicles were damaged. One corrections officer suffer minor injuries, but the department said in a statement that essential functions weren't affected. Some 100 windows or skylights were damaged by hail at the Ouachita River Unit at Malvern.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
