Severe weather leaves damage across Ark-La-Tex

    Severe weather yesterday evening left damage across the Ark-La-Tex.

    SWEPCO has worked through the night to restore power to affected areas after storms left thousands without electricity.  The Associated Press has reported that more than 346,000 utility customers were without power across the affected area in Texas. 

    Damage is still being estimated this morning.  Reports of several tornadoes across Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas, last night have come in, with one touching down in Fouke and another near LSU in Shreveport.  So far, no reports of serious injury or death have come in as a result of the storms.

    This story will update as more information becomes available.
