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.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
