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.
