Several storms became severe early Thursday and caused damage to areas in north Arkansas and in the Little Rock metro area.

The severe threat is winding down as rain and storms continue to move east throughout the morning and early this afternoon.

Much cooler air will follow Thursday morning’s showers and storms, with calmer weather in place Thursday evening.

While severe weather was not widespread, there have been several reports of damage across the state.

Just after 4:30 a.m., a tornado warned storm caused damage to trees, powerlines, and structures south of Yellville in Marion county that trapped several people.

Several hours later, strong thunderstorms knocked out power in portions of Yell and Pope county.

Little Rock did not escape the worst weather either, with a severe thunderstorm moving into the metro area after 8:30 AM. We have received many reports of trees and power lines down in Benton, Maumelle, and areas west of downtown Little Rock.

Stay with the KATV weather team throughout the day for the latest updates.
