There has been a debris ball on radar for the past 20+ minutes in Arkansas north of Little Rock and there is really bad damage please pray for the people or Arkansas and keep them in your thoughts!

ETA: The storm is weakening and the debris ball is gone but it was a large, violent tornado and the storm has the possibility of cycling back and creating another tornado.

Hey hey so the Storm Prediction Center issued its latest convective outlook which gives you the risk of severe weather in your area on a particular day.  This latest outlook has a HIGH RISK AREA on it (the first of the year) and includes Camden, Danville, and Little Rock, Arkansas!!  There are already storms with tornado warnings in this area!  Please be careful this evening into tonight!

They have also issued a PDS (Particularly Dangerous Situation) Tornado Watch valid until 11PM CDT for central and southern AR.  Again, be careful! Severe weather safe room facilities & NOAA transmitter locations & frequencies.  Staying safe during a tornado. (Both of these links from KATV in Little Rock, AR)

This is why I’ve been so vocal about needing rain! 98% of the state is in drought conditions, with over half of it in severe drought!

The fear instilled by tornadoes, and the fascination with them, is beyond rational accounting; they are the weather watcher’s equivalent of charismatic megafauna. Their aura is not difficult to fathom. Descending suddenly, menacingly, and without reliable warning, the tornado serves as a near-primal expression of the mysterious and fraught relationship between individuals and the skies above them.
