The warm, moist air this morning doesn't bode well as a cold front approaches.

Already, a report of a tornado in rural Washington County that hit three structures.

UPDATE: The Arkansas Department of Emergency Management reports that three people were killed in the community of Cincinnati in western Washington County and that storm damage has been reported in Benton and Madison Counties. Highway 59 near Cincinnati was closed by downed trees. A sheriff's office dispatcher told Channel 7 there may be additional injuries. Authorities say the dead were an elderly couple found in their home near a local store and a 78-year-old man who had been milking cows in a barn nearby.

There are widespread power outages in the northwest corner of the state.

  • 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.
