Big Wind, round two

Posted By on Thu, Apr 10, 2008 at 10:52 AM

KTHV is reporting a tornado warning for several counties in central Arkansas including Grant, Saline, Dallas and Hot Spring Counties. Spotters have reported a funnel near Leola, south of Sheridan in Grant County. Radar also indicated another twister 4 miles south of Prattsville.

From the looks of KTHV's most recent radar images, the nastiest cell of the storm is tracking northeast, which should take it through Little Rock in the next hour or so. Batten down the hatches, mateys!

UPDATE: Tornado sirens are going off in Little Rock.

From the National Weather service: THE TORNADO WILL BE NEAR... IRONTON...SWEET HOME...WRIGHTSVILLE AROUND 1120 AM CDT... TERRY LOCK AND DAM...LITTLE ROCK NATIONAL AIRPORT... PROTHRO JUNCTION AROUND 1125 AM CDT... SCOTT...MCALMONT AROUND 1130 AM CDT... SOUTH BEND...JACKSONVILLE AROUND 1135 AM CDT...

  • 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.
